I can't wait to try this! I'm like you lucky. If I post a recipe I would REALLY like someone to try it as it is written. Sure, any recipe can be changed, but then it's not the recipe I posted
Like my "sort of marasala chicken" - if you take away the marsala and use wine, and then use a different cheese, and not pound out the chicken, and not use the mushrooms.....well, it's not my "sort of marsala chicken" anymore - it's a totally different chicken dish that still may be good.
And my mother's macaroni salad - if you change it she will haunt you - promise!
If we have a July 4th party I will make this for sure! I have a different bean salad (can be found if you google Cheesy Spoon Bread) - it's in the same post as the cheesy spoon bread I think. Oh wait - Here is the recipe
. This recipe is the same way - you MUST let it set in fridge for 2 hours for the zesty Italian to "tone down".
