Story of the recipe

This recipe is connected with my best Christmas, that was the last one. I cooked this recipe among other things. (A lot of other things….)

My family is a big italian family, and my huband’s too.. so when Christmas came usually it was a tragedy: we had to choose, one year each, and nobody was happy.

This year everything changed! My husband and I managed to buy a new house, with a big living room…and the solution to our problem appeared: we gathered my family and my husband’s family all together... we invited even my brother’s mother-in-law and my sister-in-law’s brother so everyone, finally, was happy… that was the best Christmas for me.

A lot of cooking involved….. but it was worthy!
