This is an easy dish to make and results in a great dinner entree. Been making this recipe for 50 years, and the craving still strikes on a semi-regular basis. We got the recipe from a buddy's girlfriend, and if I could remember her name, she would be a lifetime member of our Christmas card list. It was a short romance. We sometimes double the sauce and cook a little more rice if there are big eaters partaking in the meal. IMPORTANT... a good dry white wine is critical to the quality of this dish. Cooking wine can be used, but you will never gain entry to our Christmas Card List. —MTDavids
