I created this recipe for an Italian friend who was feeeling homesick. She said, “My Mama used to make this wonderful roast, like an American pot roast, but with lots of garlic and, and herbs and wine and…. I’m dying for some!” (Picture her thick Italian accent here, I didn’t have the heart to attempt to duplicate it.)
I whipped this up and Marta seemed to feel it came close to her memories of home. It’s so easy to make for a comforting Sunday supper. Plus, if you have a small family, the leftovers will make unctuous pasta dishes, sandwiches or noodle casseroles all week. I think it’s one of the best investments of kitchen time on a blustery Sunday, like today. I’m heading for the store right now!
EASE OF PREPARATION: A snap
