A CookTale

Mario Batali’s classic book Molto Mario has a recipe for Spicy Sicilian Chicken. Upon review, many of his listed ingredients were not in our fridge or pantry. By improvising, the dish we created was terrific. More evidence that cooking is a creative endeavor for those with the willingness to experiment. Occasionally you’ll miss, more often than not you’ll be pleased with the result.INGREDIENTS

2 Sweet Italian Sausages
