This was absolutely superb! I couldn't find any hazelnuts locally, so I substituted pine nuts (pignoli) instead. It was a big hit for Saturday lunch with guests. My guests even took my recipe that I had printed out, so I'll have to print another one now!

* I got totally lucky finding these nuts. Usually can't find them in Arizona. Made it and man, was it good. Totally adding this to the Family Cookbook. *
