My Italian Aunt always made this when she'd come out to Nebraska to her In=laws (who were very German).. It was a request from them.. along with her Italian Spaghetti Sauces;;; She used home-canned green beans or fresh green beans in the summer..also tomatoes...but 60 yrs later, I have substitued the frozen green beans and canned tomatoes...
