"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:
We do not know where Dad go this recipe from. We think that he maybe got it from his work. We do not remember him making this, so it must have been an old recipe. He took a lot of detailed notes, so it must be something he was passionate about!
