SAUSAGE AND DITALINI STEW is a quick easy meal we use to dunk our crusty Italian bread in. Sometimes if we were lucky enough in the old days, we had shredded mozzarella to add to the top of this dish and that was a huge bonus. We often called this stoup, it's kind of a stew soup. A hearty one bowl meal that went a long way on a small budget!
