Description

Cotechino with Lentils... a New Year's Eve tradition. Cotechino is an Italian fresh pork sausage that has a creamy, mild flavor. It is usually produced in links under a foot long with a diameter of nearly three inches. Clove and nutmeg seasonings give the sausage a unique flavor. You may find this sausage online, or in authentic Italian butchers.
