Recipe by Daniele1969

Like I mentioned in my Bio, my mom wrote a cookbook back in 1984. It was a combination cookbook/biography. I have my own copy which is a really good thing - sad to say my mom doesn't cook anymore. Anyway, this is ONE of my many favorites that I make ALL the time. I don't mess with this recipe because you just don't mess with perfection!!!

So very simple, healthy, easy to prepare, full of natural flavour! I did use a 410 gr can of tomatoes, since I didn't have any fresh, so counted the juice as my cup of tomato sauce, and added a tblsp of tomato paste instead. I used this as a side-dish to chicken schnitzel for the family, although I very happily had this as my main. Thank you Daniele, lovely recipe! Made for My-3-Chefs, November 2008
