I remember my Grandmother making this marvelous dish over 65 years ago. We were the only vegetarians in our family and therefore Grandma cooked just to please me.
A very easy, simple but tasty side dish.
Young potatoes are especially good.
We love pierogis and this looks like a different and delicious way to serve them. It makes a complete meal-in-one. You could also substitute onion and potato pierogies in this dish. Recipe is from Simple and Delicious.
John T. Edge, Burgers: An American Story, Putnam 2005- Adapted from this wonderful story teller, perfect for picnic or nice luncheon burger.
Normally we serve this with a big bowl of pass around potato chips, ice cold pickles, and a large wedge of fresh tomato. Soft buns are best, but toast works equally as well.
This is modified from a recipe on the menus4moms website. It's simple to prepare, and the crunchy topping gives it great texture. I serve it on a bed of spinach fettucini for a pretty presentation. I used bone-in, skin-on thighs, but you could really use whatever pieces you have on hand, or that your family prefers. If using boneless pieces, you will need to cook for less time.
You could hear the lunch bell ring from all the way over at the barn. Dong! Dong! Dong! "It's time for lunch!" Jerry shouted. He jumped down off the tractor and headed for the old pickup truck. "Whata we having?" yelled Bubba. Dennis smiled, "We having that lip smacking good chicken with that sauce!" Everyone piled into the back of the truck and made their way to the table, it was piled high with tasty chicken, sauce in a gravy ladle and some nice red tomatoes. Hurry up and pass that down here...Granddad boldly nodded. Feel free to add the sauce to potatoes or vegetables as suggested by Jen T who must be a genius! Thanks, Jen!
But most of all *enjoy* and gather around the table and rest a spell.
This is a great salad and one of our favorites. For an added touch, use wooden salad bowls and take one clove of garlic (smashed) and rub it on the inside of the bowl before adding the salad. For a nice twist, try using Recipe #369834 by Chef #37449
I find it totally amazing, that children and men ALL LOVE THIS RECIPE! As for the Female of our species we just love this for the flavor and the health benefits it brings our families.
Roasted brings out a wonderful sweetness in this dish. The Garlic is roasted to a tan color is creamy good. You can just pop them in your mouth. Or you can spread them on your florets or fresh bread. Just be sure to scoop up some of the rosemary, olive oil and black pepper that may have escaped to the bottom of the dish.

My mom was cleaning out one of her closets and came across several folders full of recipes that she had clipped from magazines and newpapers over the years. This came from the Houston Post (no longer in circulation) 1990. The article was promoting a cookbook by Bon Appetit called "Too Busy to Cook". This is a nice, quick and easy meal!
Apparently this dish is named in honour of a carters wife, who travelled everyday to Rome from the countryside with her donkey laden with fruit, vegetables and wine. I don't know how true that is, but it's a good simple dish made with humble ingredients, and it's delicious.
