    Aimee67's Note:

    I have been making this recipe for my husband's birthday dinner for the last 15 years. This recipe truly stands on it's own merit and I don't recommend any changes. I originally got this recipe from a cookbook but have modified it over the years to make it simpler.

      I added some sliced up prosciutto to the tomato sauce, but other than that, I stuck completely with this recipe and it was delicious! Thank you!
