This is a MUST when my father is in town for Easter! (Since we don't typically have the full Italian contingent otherwise.) The only change I make is not to put the hard boiled eggs in no one seems to miss them and I never liked the texture.
We are all Italian and my Mother makes this every year for her Father who is now 96. This is basically the same recipe she uses. It is really delicious and worth the time involved to carry on the Italian tradition!
