"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

This is a holiday favorite of my family. I usually double the recipe so that the Blythe and Melissa can take home leftovers. It is great for a special breakfast too and is wonderful as a topping for vanilla ice cream or pound cake.
