Mary's "Seafood Fettuccini" ..... Straight from the center of the City of Milano.

Our entire family gathered together Saturday evening for a dinner party with a total of sixteen family and friends. Daughter Mary who lives in Milan, Italy was our guest chef! (by command) It was a true command performance of excellence! I will share Mary's recipe for Seafood Fettuccine. You understand that Italian cooks keep a tasting spoon nearby and use it as they cook.
