    larry #2's Note:

    I first ate this wonderful dish in San Francisco (it was a favorite of the famous Tenor, +created by him). Although rich (I only prepare it VERY occasionally), it's well worth the calories and cholesterol. Although I can go home S.F. and EAT IN N. Beach (an Italian Area of S.F.), I try and recreate the feel of a real Italian restaurant.

      Made this last night, and apart from downsizing quantities to half the recipe, made one change.... I didn't have chicken livers, so used shrimp instead. Oh, and I added a thinly sliced red pepper. I can assure you, excellent, a well-flavoured tomato sauce, rich with the addition of the red wine, cooked down well in the time stated. I used frozen shrimp, and added them in the last ten minutes or so of cooking, serving as soon as they were ready. I actually had a bit left over, which I had for lunch today, excellent :D I served over spaghetti for an excellent supper, thank you Larry! Made for PAC Fall 2008

      I have been preparing this for years...without a recipe. One of my aunts used to make this and I tried to recreate the recipe. Now I have one. Thanks. RenMyr
