Roman Pasta

Tamika Garrett


Me my husband were stationed in Italy. We were there for 3 years and while there I learned to make a lot of wonderful italian dishes. This one was one of my favorites while I was pregnant with my son. I substitued apple juice in place of the brandy. I hope you all enjoy this dish as much as my family enjoys it! Enjoy!
