Gluten Free Italian Sausage

Italian Sausage   When I went gluten free 6 years ago, I soon discovered that I also react severely to MSG.  It hides in so many places and under so many different names, that for me it is easier to just make things from scratch , than to risk what might be lurking in manufactured and processed foods.  One of the foods I make myself is Italian sausage.  I was quite surprised how easy it really is to make and I can control the quality of products going into it.  I prefer organic whenever possible and obviously gluten and MSG free. Here is the recipe I use.  I hope you find it useful and you to can have peace of mind knowing what is in your food.
