This recipe reminds me of the offerings on menus at the dozens of wine bistros in Rome where the young professionals visit after work around 6PM , they have a nibble and a glass of wine, head home and go back out for dinner around 9:00. My husband and I are too old to eat that late so we never visit the Bistros. So, I am looking forward to trying little delight at home, around 4:30 then enjoying our dinner at 6:00 as usual. Thanks for submitting this so I can finally have one!
