"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

Personal Notes:
This recipe was Grandma Helen Allgood's masterpiece. She prepared this special for Mom and Barry every Thanksgiving. They always felt special because Grandma made it just for them and they would eat it until they could eat no more! After Grandma passed, Mom used this recipe to continue the tradition.
