I read this recipe in a magazine about 25 years ago. I thought I would give it a try.
My family loved it, especially my daughter and son's.
I have been making it ever since.
I don't make it too often now that there is just my husband and myself.
When I go back to Boston this is the one recipe my daughter will ask me to make. My now son-in-law loves it too.
