National Poetry Month 21/30: Sicilian Pie

This National Poetry Month(NPM), I am writing and sharing original poems about food, family and feasts. Sundays will be a day to reshare a poem from the past. A list of links to previous poems is HERE.

My husband’s family is from southern Italy and Sicily. His Sicilian Nana (only grandparent he knew) taught him how to make this dish. It’s a crowd favorite.

    Love your poem. My husband, also a Chuck, is from Pulgia. He was born five days after his family arrived here from Italy. He is a chef. Your poem and picture make my mouth water.

    Looks yummy! I love the form you chose for your pie! My Italian grandparents made delicious homemade pizza pie, too.
