This recipe is from my aunt ( who entered it in a Taste of Home contest many years ago and was featured in one of their magazine issues) Before that it has been in our family for 3 generations. We have a very large extended family and this is always welcome at our potlucks! This is a hearty crowd pleasing Italian main dish. It's easy to make and serve. Photo by Taste of Home
