    Erindipity's Note:

    I won't lie, this recipe is a lot of work, high in fat and high in calories. It will take a couple hours to make and I only do it once year on my husband's birthday. All that said, it is so worth it. If you want to break you diet this is the one to do it with. My mother says she got the recipe when my father was stationed in Germany in the 70's. I don't think she even remembers the original source any longer. Of note: I have never used the chicken livers, but the original recipe does call for them. Plum tomatoes are difficult to find these days and you can substitute any canned tomato you like.

      This was really nice. You were right about it taking a long time! I used canned roma tomatoes and also ommited the liver and it was a very yummy meal. Even the kids liked it! Although when I put my six year old's serve in front of him the look on his face was as though I had given him a plate of mud for dinner, but he soon changed his attitude when he started eating, he ate the lot!! Note to anyone who might get the idea of adding some cheese to the white sauce; DONT!!! I tried this and I totally killed the sauce and had to make it again. A definete keeper, thank you :)
