Oh c'mon!! I want Nonni Donroe to be my grandma too! Is there such a thing as adopting a grand child? Do you think she'd be up for that? I would color her TONS of pictures with my own crayons! She could cover her fridge in no time! Also.. tell her, when I spill my glass of milk, I ALWAYS clean it up myself. So there's that.

'kay go ask her..

Ah, I adore Nonni recipes, and your photos are fantastic! My Nonni (Nan)used to make the most delectable tortellini, though they were usually cheese-filled, as that was the preference among the family. Nan kept the US postal service in business when she used to send care packages from RI to her son in CA. I'm so glad you visited my blog because now I discovered yours; it's a gem!

Susan: Thanks for stopping by! Must be all of the Italian grandmothers keeping the postal service in business.

Lisa: I think Nonni would LOVE to adopt another grandchild. It's the other grandchildren that might not be so keen on sharing.

Thank you so much for the cappellettis recipe. My aunt married into a large Italian family. When I was a child (I'm 60 now) my family always visited my aunt's in-laws for Thanksgiving. Cappellettis were the first dish served every year!!! oh the memories! However, the recipe was a secret and passed down to only one daughter. Their whole family still gathers every year to make the cappellettis, but the recipe remains a secret! I didn't even know how to spell the word until I saw it in a facebook message for their family gathering this year. I am so excited about having your Nonni's recipe to try for my family. I guess I will have to invest in a good pasta machine! LOL

I like it!
