Margi, if you like chicken livers, I was reminded of a pasta dish with red wine or Marsala, chicken livers & pasta...

Spaghetti alla Caruso

Spaghetti Alla Caruso

Meanwhile... some pasta-eating music and an intermission.

Spaghetti alla Caruso is wonderful!

I have not seen it on a menu in years. We used to get it at a little old fashioned Italian restaurant in our city. The kind of place where the waiters are all over sixty and the parking lot was always full of cars but the dining room was always empty! Where is everybody?

that sounds like an old yogi berra-ism, about eating at a very poular local restaurant.

yogi said that he wasn't going because, "that place is so busy that nobody goes there anymore".

Mine, too, Andy. I like to play around and substitute the meat if I don't have pancetta. I love crumbled Italian sausage with it.

@ Cerise,

Wow ... that is quite an oldie but goodie, CHICKEN LIVERS ... it is a rustic dish ... shall ask about while I am in Apulia.

There are so many variations for each regional dish, especially once they cross the ocean ...
Thanks for post. ( enjoyed )
Happy Holidays.
Margi.

@ Cerise: Tortellini in Caruso

In late 2010, for the Christmas Holidays, the Vet and I had gone to Punta de Este, Uruguay and had a dish, which was similar to a Bechamel only alot thicker ... tortellini al┤ caruso ... It was quite delicious ...

However, I am not sure if this is the dish, you are referring to ?

Kindest. Margi.
