ou know that old adage about how you don’t want to watch sausage being made? Think again. There’s still a family-run butcher shop that makes its own sausage right behind the counter, and what comes out of it will make your mouth water from the moment it hits your grill. (What you really don’t want to know is where the stuff in the supermarket comes from.) DePasquale Sausage Company, like its signature product, is stuffed into a small space, in its case a tiny storefront filled with hot and sweet sausage, pastas, spices, olive oil, stuffed peppers, and other Italian foods.

Notable for its concentration of descendants of Italian immigrnants, Nonantum is known locally as “the Lake,” and has its own lingo blending English and Italian. It is, among other things, the place where the New England term “pissa,” as in “great,” originated. Used in a sentence: The sausage from DePasquale’s are pissa.”
