This tastes good, but the portion size is definitely NOT for 2 people! It's more like 6-8. I'm not sure how 2 people could down all of this, particulary with bread and veggies. A VERY heavy dish, but easy to make. I used canned garlic and ended up dumping in a whole container (very garlicky but good), just under 1 cup. I also reduced the half and half to 5 cups. I've read previously you can use 2% or skim and blend in about 1 cup of half and half to make this dish healthier. If you do reduce to 5 cups, I would recommend using 3/4 cup butter with it. Don't worry about the anchovies, I was concerned they wouldn't "melt" and tried breaking them up... They cook and basically crumble into the sauce, so you can literally just dump them in. A nice and different recipe, just a HUGE portion!!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
I love this recipe!!! Remember to take the peanut butter cups out while the cookies are in the oven, you'll want to press them in immediately. Popping them into the oven ASAP is a must, so have the shelf space ready ahead of time as well. I like to throw sprinkles on top to give it a little color. Great recipe!

Cassata Cake
This cake does NOT remind of the Cassata cake I have had with Italian families who make them at home. It's not authentic at all!
