Nancy J.'s notes for this recipe:
This dish is a Chicago ITALIAN specialty!
The origin of the recipe is unknown,but some suggest it might have been popularized in 1930's
by Chicago's
Famous VESUVIO RESTAURANT.
On the dinner menu it is $17.00
MMmmmmm, I wonder if Capone ate there??? ...
Just wondering!!

This is a quick, easy and cheaper
version of this delightful, and delicious recipe.
