Giada De Laurentiis' "Everyday Italian"

Top Review by GaylaV

This is a fantastic recipe. The only change I made was to leave out the potato as I wanted mashed potatoes with the roast pork I was serving with dinner. Every time I had a vegetable I thought that was the one I liked best. I guess I just loved the whole package. This will be a regular at our house. Quick, easy and super delicious tasty just as I expect Giada's recipes to be!! Thanks for sharing your recipe. This was made for My3Chefs.
