This is so tasty! So authentic! So easy! It just gets better the longer it sets. I like to make mine the day before. This doubles and triples well. If you are a meatless family, just substitute 2 1/2 pounds of zucchini for the meat. I wait until just about the last minute before I stir in the basil leaves, torn into small pieces, as it gets "tired" if you put it in any earlier. Also use your fingers to break up the basil, minus the stems, cutting it bruises the leaves and they will turn black.
