How could you ever go wrong (make sure you pronounce it with an "Italian" accent.) Why? Because you will have thought you had a miracle flight to Italy when you were asleep. You will be transformed into believing the plate in front of you was brought to you by a wonderful woman who owns a little bistro in the midst of wine-country, and she served you salad table side where the tables were decorated with grape leaves, a spray of baby's breath, and large sunflowers. All those thoughts ran through my mind as I was devouring this You will be enjoying every. single. bite. Followed this exactly, except used a bit of feta because I ran out of asiago cheese. Go ahead pull up a chair and enjoy. Made for Everyday is a Holiday October 2009
