Fettina Pizzaiola {Sliced Beef in Tomato Sauce} {contributor Rosemary}

Hello again everyone, I am Rosemary from anitalianinmykitchen.com, with the kids almost finished with school and the long days of summer upon us, I thought it would be great to have a delicious, fast and easy dish to prepare.  This dish is called “fettina pizzaiola”, which in English means beef slices in a seasoned tomato sauce.  This is amazing served with a side vegetable or maybe even better in a crusty bun to become an Italian sandwich to be remembered. So no matter how you serve it, I hope you find it as tasty as I do.
