“My Italian ancestors come Southern Italy; specifically Calabria. This is similar to what I remember my Dad making; process and ingredients. He probably got the technique from his GF Frank Scavo...but we also have Comita, Scalzo, Gigliotti, Grande and Micelli in our who knows? (Frank made his own sausage..mmmmm) I highly suggest that you serve this over Creamy Parmesan Polenta (Parmesan Polenta)”
