  6. Comments: Connie Capani of Binghamton, New York, writes: "I am 100 percent Italian, so perhaps it's no surprise which I love food: To Italians, it's like a security blanket. I learned how to make spaghetti and other Abruzzi favorites from my mother. Looking at food magazines is what got me interested in venturing out into American culinary territory. I wanted to know how to make a "gravy" which didn't include tomatoes. I often make a roast with gravy, but our guests usually request some of my baked eggplant marinara to go along with it."
  7. Connie makes this ahead of time and refrigerates it, then reheats it before serving.
