This recipe is an adaptation of one that Michael Symon made on the new show is on called, “The Chew” with Mario Batali and Clinton Kelly Daphne Oz and Carla Hall.
Last week, we (my hubby and I) decided to make it when the temperature lowered and it was raining outside. BOY! Did this hit the spot! We made a huge patch thinking we would freeze some of it for another day, however, it didn’t make it past the next day.
I hope you enjoy!
