I have made this for years as it is one of my family's favourites that they ask for. When my son was 9, he had an Italian friend over on a night when I had planned this...turns out he liked all the ingredients so I went ahead with the recipe. He liked it so much that he asked for the recipe. When he lost it on the way home, he insisted that his mom ask me to email it so she could make it that night for supper! Think that says a lot!
