This recipe has a history. When I was young, tradition was that all the foods to be served on Easter Sunday were prepared in advance. On the day before Easter, the food would be layed out on the table so the local parish priest could come and bless the food. This recipe is a tradition on Easter Sunday. It is from Naples, Italy!
