Italian sausage is deeply rooted in regional traditions and cuisines.
DiRusso's Real Italian Sausage has become the favorite sausage in Northeast Ohio and beyond.

DiRusso’s Italian Sausage Links and Patties (Sweet, Medium Hot, and Hot flavors) are perfect for backyard grilling. Each portioned 4 oz. link in collagen casing makes for easy and uniform cooking.
