    Scafire-Jen's Note:

    This is a recipe my mother got from her grandmother who was 1st-generation Sicilian. I've altered it a bit by using sauce from the jar but the main parts of the recipe are intact. There is a bit of prep time but it cooks fairly quickly and tastes wonderful with some garlic bread, a salad, and some light red wine. Also, to make the pasta easier to fill you can use a pastry bag or just cut the end off a ziplock bag.
