My Italian friend ANN ,serves this at her annual Easter dinners.
I never heard of this Italian pie..but it was Delicious!
She mailed me the recipe that she had found in a magazine. Maybe in Taste of Home Magazine.
She said it was very close to the one her mother passed on to her.
If you have never tried it...Please do!
you will not be disappointed!
