This is my moms recipe. I LOVED when she made it when I was a kid, so now I make it for myself often. The "foundation" for the sauce is the butter and the olive oil. I am a garlic lover, so I use 2X the garlic, but I thought I would post the original recipe without my little changes!! I do prefer mine made with the optional ingredients, but that's definitely based on preference!
