Top Review by ItalianMomof2

I almost didn't make this because of a review, but after looking at the ingredients and directions am glad i did! This was superb! I will admit to leaving the cayenne pepper out (i'm a wimp, i'll admit it!) but it was so good and tasty! Thank you so much for a delicious recipe. Oh, i also used Red table wine instead of white, my grandma would knock me silly if i used white wine in the gravy!..LOL..delicious! Thank you so much for a tasty recipe!
