Author's Comments

In a lot of recipes I keep mentioning a combination of ingredients that is typically Sicilian. Here is a recipe for just that combination to use as a topping for boiled potatoes or other vegetables, but as a topping for Crostini or toasted Italian Bread it is outstanding.

From my cookbook: The "Old Counttry" Italian cookbook, by Donald J.P. La Marca
