This basic recipe is taken from The Silver Spoon, the Italian version of Mrs Beeton. There are several versions available on Amazon, this is the version I have. Because I refreshed my memory of the recipe from this book, I have tweaked the meal plan quantities used a little. I had set aside a bit too much flour for this recipe, and no egg.
