This dish was inspired by a description in the novel, 'The Godfather.' It is also a favorite with my 'family.' Serve with a crusty bread, a green salad, and a robust dry red wine for a very satisfying meal.
You might as well bake pumpkin bread in the large batch called for here, because everyone loves it. Three full-sized loaves, lively with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, are your reward. Wrap loaves in cellophane, tie with a colorful ribbon, and give as a gift!
