« Spaghetti Pie - Strangely Inticing! | Main | Baking Italian Biscotti Cookies »



This is a delicious sounding recipe, but please refrain from calling it "The" Italian Way. My parents both immigrated from Calabria and would not serve baccala over pasta dressed with sauce, thus there is at least one other way. You may name it after your family if you wish.

Taking offense about somebody calling something "the italian way" is silly. We italians all understand that there is no one italian way. But objecting to somebody's recipe title as if they are trying to de-italianize YOU, for having a different view, is kind of immature. Is the little word "THE" really that important? How about simply thanking the person for the lovely simple recipe that pretty much embodies the italian way of cooking?

My Grandparents immigrated from Calabria - Alte Monde specifically and we had this dish every Christmas Eve. Your parents must not have been from the region.
