The measurements are off. I had a lot of the cream mixture leftover. I also cut the pork rind mixture in 1/2 which was perfect amount. 4 tablespoons of garlic salt??? I can`t see anyone able to enjoy this with that much salt? It is salt laden from the cheeses and rinds. Also if using the caponata it too has salt. I did use tomato sauce in place of the caponata. I love it but my guys wouldn`t eat this with the caponata. Where does the dried basil go? This recipe does need tweaking. I made for PAC 2010 http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327522.
