    Doxie lover in the Rock 2's Note:

    I am posting this because an Italian patient of mine didn't have any family recipes passed on to him (due to adoption). Now I can just print it out if need ever arises again! lol This is the recipe my Sicilian mother and grandmother taught me. It is simple, delicious and one of my favorite comfort foods. It is much quicker than marinara with beef or pork (i.e. sausage or meatballs)--ENJOY! And please don't tell my grandmother I posted this family recipe online.

      Very good. I thought is was a bit bland as is, so added 2 cloves of minced garlic, a couple of big pinches of red pepper flakes, omitted the water and added a bit more red wine. Thank you for posting Doxie! Made for 2009 Spring PAC

      We thought this was a bit on the bland side. No get up an go! No wow! I did add more chicken and omitted the water, but still it wasn't what we thought it would be. It needs lots more spices. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC spring 08'

      This was a yummy dish. But the water made it thin (so it will omitted next time). And I wish I could find a red bwine to give it the missing taste. But def. a keeper.
