This recipe is simple but so incredibly flavorful and mouth watering. Growing up in an Italian household my Mother always made huge family Sunday dinners so we would have a protein, a huge bowl of pasta, veggie, salad, and dessert of course. We always had a large crowd because me and my 2 sisters invited a friend or boyfriend or both. Not sure how my Mom did it every Sunday but our dinners we're always soooo YUMM. This was one of the first dishes I learned how to make when I was a teenager. It's ALWAYS a HUGE hit so enjoy. Mangia!!
