As is Italian custom there isn't a recipe for the dish. There are ingredients, but no portion sizes and the method constantly changes. It's so very delicious but I obviously needed guidance.
First I peeled
Dad sliced ( I was not good at this part!!)
And laid em' out to dry
Then came the interesting part of mixing the ingredients together and sampling until it tasted right. I like to follow recipes exactly so I had to throw that out the window and just eat, toss in another ingredient in, eat, repeat.
Any proper Italian cooking session also calls for lots of this -
Then Dad showed me the ropes on frying
And I assembled!
I was texting Mike through the entire process and he is way excited that I am acting like a proper Italian wife. It was alot of fun just learning how to cook on instinct and I loved being taught a 'family recipe.' Now I have to hope it tastes good!
