A few weeks ago I paid the wonderful Nonna Angelina a visit at her daughters home in Long Island. There was no point in arguing, I was happily staying for dinner. As soon as I arrived I could smell the deliciousness in the kitchen. Nonna Angelina was working on a delightful sauce of shallots, sweet fennel sausage and mushrooms (my favorite) tossed with a bit of cream. As I swooned with every bite at dinner I knew I had to make it at home as soon as possible, using her recipe of course! your social media marketing partner
