    Sweetiebarbara's Note:

    This is a dish I make only once a year. We invite friends to dinner. If there are any leftovers, I freeze them in single serving size bags and put those into a large freezer bag. This is labor intensive, and an all day affair for me. I like that the crosswise sections make me think of the Italian flag.
