"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

I got this recipe out of the Dayton Daily News newspaper in 1979 when microwaves were quite new. I have been using this recipe every year for Christmas. My dad really enjoys it. You may need to adjust the cooking time depending on the power of your microwave.
