I grew up in an italian influenced household, my mother's parents were immigrants that settled in NYC. If you've ever had NY style pasta and gravy, or if you've ever heard of it and wanted to try it, this is as authentic as it gets. I would love some feedback! Let me know what you think. Do you like it? Is it what you thought it would be? Is it what you remember too? Thanks!!
