“This is my attempt at duplicating a dish from a wonderful restaurant in Charleston, SC, Tratorria Lucca. It's a play on pork Parmesan. Note: For the diced tomatoes, I sometimes use a Mario Batali basic tomato sauce recipe and separated the liquid from the tomatoes and add the basil. Also, I sometimes use the reserved liquid from the sauce, mixed with some oil, vinegar and sugar, for the sauce to drizzle on the arugula.”
