"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

Kay is the wife of Cecil Newman, the daughter of Virginia (Rogers) Hollenshead & the late John Hollenshead & the granddaughter of the late Charlie & Carrie (Wade) Hollenshead. I first enjoyed this recipe when my niece, Marcia Oakes, prepared it as a side dish for Thanksgiving Dinner. Yummy! She said, "This side dish is a crowd-pleaser, proving everything is better with bacon."
