This recipe was passed down to me by my mother, Immacolata. Sadly, my "mamma" passed away suddenly on January 29, 2013. It was an unexpected shock to all. Mamma Bracco was full of love, laughter and life ... and boy could she cook!! I'm glad I have this recipe, and so many others that she gave me. Hope you enjoy them!
