    Sounds really yummy to me. What are tomato fillets? Is it like whole tomatoes, seeded? Thanks for this fantastic recipe.

      Tomato fillets are peeled sliced tomatoes that are canned just like crushed tomatoes, only thet are in slices in sauce. Yes they are seeded.

        I've never heard of tomato fillets. Is this a regional thing? Where would one find them?

          Stanislaus Food Products, Modesto Ca,1 800 987-9670.
          Their product is called 74.40, which means that in a standard #10 can you get approx. 74oz. of sliced skinless tomoto pulp and approx 40oz. of weight from the chopping and draining.

            Now that sounds like a SOUP! I probably would top it off with some romano/parmesan cheese. The combo of Hot Italian sausage and peppers, it is to me one of the best for flavor, in sandwhices, omelets almost anything.

                For myself, Absolutely, a good Romano/ parma gets pricy, when your trying to maintain decent food cost margins! Now that you mention it, I'm going to put some in a crock, provolone on top, under the broiler til melted, additional MMMMM

                  Tomato fillets are available at quite a few markets I've noticed. Look closely and ask your store mgr.

                    Yumm, this recipes sounds wonderful.

                    Question. Why grind sausage, and thin slice?

                    Does this make a difference in the taste or presentation?

                    I cannot wait to try a similar recipe, for just me, LOL, but it is next on my list.

                      Gives you some sausage every spoonfull! No taste difference.

                        LuckyLab, is this for commercial use? Sounds like a huge pot of soup.

                        "1#10 sliced new potatoes rough cut, fry with above" Are you taking the already sliced potatoes and then cutting them up? How about using cubed potatoes instead?

                        Man this does sound good! I'm gonna give it a try on a much smaller scale.

                          Mike, yes Commercial quantity, cubed potatoes may work, I never tried, I like the sliced new potatoes chopped up rough, they hold up really well!
