    GrandmaG's Note:

    My Granny Newman gave me this recipe some 30+ years ago to use in a home economics class for Italian day. My teacher and other teachers loved it. I got an A+ for this one. GrannyN was a great cook and a wonderful Grandmother, I miss her so.

      Really flavorful. I chose this as a Pick A Chef recipe Nov '04. I used the rosamarina pasta and followed the recipe as written except I added just a bit more cheese (I shredded a bit too much). It's creamy, and I LOVE the crunch of the almonds. I took a couple of pics, but they came out blurry - my camera battery is really low. Thanks!
