Oh I love it too Ari!Having had inlaws who were 1st geroantien Sicilian-American and having visited Sicily myself, there is a fashion sense on that island that defies our American stereotype of a 'backward' 'oldschool' Sicilian. (We Americans think we're such know-it-alls)Brava to Alessandra and her Mom for alerting us to this video! I'm going to give it a thumbs up on youtube!~ Susan
CindyIMHOThe way I see it, this election isn't so much about the President, as it shluod be about replacing ALL INCUMBENTS in the Senate and the House. These are the people who are really destroying our country. They are incapable of passing any laws (that are good for the country), and entirely too many are getting rich at the expense of the American Public. More than a few of these people, especially those who have been in office for more than a few years (regardless of which party they affiliate with), can be assumed to be taking money, gifts and other favors from the lobbyists. Jack Abrams went to prison, but it takes two to tango, and in the case of lobbyists and the governing bodies, there is an awful lot of tangoing going on, and it is Not to the benefit of the American Public.Big business and large corporations are now running Our Country. Their sole purpose to make as much profit in as short a period of time as possible, regardless of the consequences or long term viability. Can you imagine if the BILLIONS that they are pouring into this election were used to actually CREATE JOBS?? What if the BILLIONS were paid to reduce our debt, or in taxes to fund our schools, roads, hospitals? Imagine that.The Elite, Big Business and the Republicans are adamant that they retain their insane tax breaks. They claim to be the “job creators”. However, in the time they have received the greatest tax benefits in history, they have created the fewest jobs in history. They have taken that money and moved it and the jobs overseas, to third world countries where they don't have to pay a living wage (or taxes), and can therefore make even bigger profits. What jobs have remained here, they have systematically sought to demote by paying less, eliminating benefits and breaking any sort of union or negotiating power the employees may have in place. Further, they now seek to tell those of us who have lost our jobs and subsequently our homes, that somehow we are to blame for the state of the economy. That we, the ones who have been laid off; that it is our fault that we can't find the jobs that aren't being created by the Rich and Powerful who have enjoyed the tremendous tax breaks for so long. That unemployment benefits, which is a fraction of our lost wages, is somehow a handout that prevents us from seeking the gainful employment we lost because of downsizing (corporate greed). What jobs are being offered are far below the prevailing wage for the same job ten years ago. Yet, somehow, it is my fault that the economy isn't recovering – or, it's President Obama's fault. Really?The economy isn't recovering, because the 1% who have enjoyed the biggest tax breaks in the history of our Country, and many of whom reaped the benefits of the bail outs that the taxpayers' paid for, haven't created any jobs! Without jobs, decent paying jobs, there is little chance of a recovery of any substance any time in the near future. If the “job creators” who have created no jobs, continue to receive their tax breaks, there is little chance of this Country ever getting out of the red.Those who are entrenched in power; they are the ones who need to be replaced. I believe they are the moving force behind the plethora of laws that come out of government every day. They seek to control and regulate us more and more, through the guise of “our protection”; yet they can't solve the budget issues, stop the war machine, or control and regulate those who so obviously need controlling and regulating (Wallstreet, Banks, Insurance Companies). Greed is a powerful master, and those who have reaped the most in government, are those in the House and Senate who have made a career of catering to the lobbyists instead of their constituencies. They are not there for Public Service, they are there to get as rich as the Elite masters they serve. Time to clean house. Time to put people in the working part of government who actually care about the future of our Country – those who are committed to educating our future leaders; those who are committed to ending the wars we have become involved in without sufficient justification; those who are committed to the long term health and well-being of our Country and our planet – for the benefit of our future. Those who would seek Public Service not as a way to become wealthy, but as a way to give back to our Country, and maintain the principles of We the People, not we the corporations/wealthy/elite.

Amber, We have had no problem frzneieg them. Just freeze them flat for about an hour then transfer to ziploc bags. That way they will not stick together.
Rich, this dish looks incredible. I love using nuts in my pasta dsiehs. The flavor combination you've come up with here is to die for. I also like the tip about using the bacon ends. At the end of the video I just want to dive into my computer screen and into your plate of pasta. Oh and I almost forgot I just love your incredible pronunciation of the dish. Keep cooking my friend.

I'm amazed at my non-Italian feirnds who feast on lasagna, ravioli and other heavy Italian dishes often, these are foods my family in the States and Italy eat only during a holiday (other than potato gnocchi or polenta (or risotto) which in the north are alternatives to pasta and always eaten in much smaller quantities than in the States). Portions are much smaller in Italy hence not presenting a weight problem. I've found that the daily Italian table is very Spartan, the usual presentation being a light soup (three or four pieces of pasta included), a light salad, a lightly sauced pasta (small quantity), roasted chicken or pan-fried minute steaks served with lemon slices, bread, wine In Sicily fish many times takes the place of poultry, pork, lamb or beef. Let's not forget though that during the holidays multi course meals will go on for three or more hours and a little bit of over eating is appreciated. Some of the best food in Italy is to be found not in the big cities but in very small towns or villages where small eateries must present tastes like home cooking and DO, if not the establishments would close down. In a small town's restaurant one is eating Mamma's food, not a chef's. Also in the small towns one experiences the true local cucina at reasonable prices along with a chance to socialize with wonderful people. Hint: Sometimes in villages there is no sign announcing the presence of a restaurant, in that the establishment is meant for locals there's no need to put up a sign being all know where to find it, many times restaurants are in a room off the local bar. Remember that a bar in Italy isn't as the American ones, they should be called pubs being they cater to families . Now if someone would answer me as to how Sicilian women who are mostly ever-so-thin can eat on a daily bases those huge Sicilian pastries for breakfast without weight problems? Thank you Letizia for the article! P.S. I've found that my younger cousins in the north of Italy will sometimes use packaged convenience foods but yet are still experts in the traditional kitchen and as good at the stove as their mothers and grandmothers.
