“Yes, silly name! I ate at a little Italian restaurant in the Bellagio Hotel on one of my MANY trips to Vegas. It was love at first bite! I begged and begged the waiter to get me the recipe. He even brought the chef out. The chef wrote down the ingredients on a napkin but would not give me amounts nor preparation instructions. I tweaked and tweaked and this is what I came up with. Funny thing is...I went back to that little restaurant after I came up with this version - ordered theirs again - and mine blew it out of the water! Hope you enjoy as well. It's delicious!”
