This dish is a Chicago ITALIAN specialty! The origin of the recipe is unknown,but some suggest it might have been popularized in 1930's by Chicago's Famous VESUVIO RESTAURANT. On the dinner menu it is $17.00 MMmmmmm, I wonder if Capone ate there??? ... Just wondering!! This is a quick, easy and cheaper version of this delightful, and delicious recipe.
