This was fantastic on day 2. But I think the garlic must have been a typo? Try 2-4 cloves not HEADS of garlic...way toooooooo strong! The sauce was wonderful! Read More

This recipe has much potential and with some tweaking I believe it could reach perfection. I used "tomato basil and garlic" pasta sauce instead of tomatoe sauce and Italian style tomatoe paste instead of plain. I don't normally like wine in dishes but it turned out very well (we used a sweet red table wine). My roommate and I were the ones who made this and since there were just two of us there was WAY WAY too much sauce with the meat... I'd reccommend cutting the all the tomatoe ingredients in half and you should still have enough for leftovers. Also we didn't cut the meat into 6 specific cuts we just cut the meat into as many oblong pieces as we could cut their thickness in half and then rolled them(you want to be sure they are not too thick!) Also I am notorious for using garlic in everything I cook... but I felt that it just really didn't blend well with the meat very much. I think garlic salt would have a much better effect. We served it with linguine noodles and it turned out great:) I will try this again with my suggestions sometime... Read More

Loved this! Made a few modifications: LESS garlic - just enough to put some on each piece of meat. ADDED: Bacon Strips to meat prior to rolling up. (Saw this in some other similar recipes.) REPLACED Anise Seed with 1 tsp Cinnamon 1 tsp Nutmeg 1 tsp Cloves (found substitution online.) My entire family liked this and they can be picky eaters! Read More

My family loved this dish! The extra sauce came in handy as a pasta sauce. I didn't have the fresh parsley so I added 2 tablespoon of dry and I only added 1 tablespoon sugar. I thought 2 would make it too sweet. I will definitely make this dish again. Next time I will be prepared and buy the fresh parsely. Read More

What a wonderful sauce! We used top round instead and added bread crumbs and parm/romano to the meat roll but other than that followed exactly. This just turned out perfectly and we were going crazy with the good smells throughout the house. This is a great one to impress your friends and family! Read More
