Fettucine with Sauteed Chicken Liver, Caramelized Onions and Cremini Mushrooms (Fetuccine con Fegatini de Pollo, Cipolle Caramellate e Funghi Cremini) Thisdish is stupendous! I had it a week before Passover & I could sure use it now! I had to shorten the name because of the computer. It was made with roasted garlic, caamelized onions, sauteed chicken livers and then the mushrooms with the wine, it was wonderful! It was served with a red wine, a salad of greens, and freshly baked bread. Of course it was served with freshly grated Pecorino Romano & Parmagiano both on the dish and sharks for the table.
