Personal Notes:
My Aunt Marge was a mixture of English and Finish. She married an Italian and learned to cook from her mother-in-law who my mom and I think made the best spaghetti sauce we've ever had. My mom and I always tried to duplicate Mama Granzella's recipe, but we never succeeded.

However, my Aunt Marge made the best pesto and this is the recipe. Of course she gave me the recipe one evening as we sat down for a few glasses of wine. She said "a dash here" a "handfull there" - stuff like that. Regardless, whenever I make the recipe, it actually turns out delicious if I do say so myself.
