Frances D’s Pasta Lenticchie was my sweet Grandma’s signature dish. Frances DeCarlo was my maternal grandmother. When I was a young girl, my grandparents came over weekly and when Frances D walked in with her Pasta Lenticchie we would all be ECSTATIC. As I made this dish, I knew I wanted to invite my mom and sisters over to enjoy it…….What a treat!!!!!
