My sister Tyra married into an Italian family and her husband asked his grandmother to "teach her a few things". When she came home for the holidays, this was the dish we were sure to ask her to cook. I'm sure Nona Demasi would be horrified to know Tyra shared the recipe with all of her sisters! So, now I'm sharing it with you! This dish is truly a testament to "simple is better". Basil is the only herb in the sauce. Tyra made it with chicken or pork. I love the bone-in pork ribs that add flavor. I lost my baby sister in 2012. But I know when I make this sauce, she's smiling!
