Spring is the perfect time for making and eating this classic Italian dish. It needs a soft green spring salad as an accompaniment along with a simple red sauce. With eggs and milk at their best I just can't resist. This recipe is not for the gluten or dairy intolerant. It's rich and decadent but also plain and simple. I guess you could say it's classy peasant food.

It's from one of those Australian Women's Weekly collectible cookbooks you could buy from supermarkets about twenty or more years ago. When the kids were small this cookbook titled "Cooking class cookbook" and The Middle Eastern Cookbook were my go to's. Both use everyday ingredients and are simple but nourishing family meals.
