Last week I wrote about one of my favorite delis in Monmouth County. For as long as Valente's Italian Deli has been open, my family has been frequent customers of their homemade pinwheel sausage.

Seriously, every time I have eaten sausage in peppers at my parents house, the sausage is from Valente's. When cooked right, I truly believe it's the best pinwheel sausage in the state. Make sure you cook it extra crispy! Valente's is located on Belmar Blvd. in Wall Township. More below!
