Lemon Pasta Berardinelli

Carole Davis


This recipe is an adaptation of one my Grandfather brought from Italy in 1912. He was from the North West in Italy where seafood is accessible and they rely more on corn and broth than in the South. I made for the first time when my children were small and they loved it. Mangiare!! Divertiti!!
