One and a half Italian night will be January 25th. This will be a special night at the Marinette Moose Lodge. Mario Pisani who was born in Lueca Italy, Province of Toscany and came to America in 1957 at the age of Seven will be our master chef. He will make an all day spaghetti sauce using his family’s recipe from the old country. Mario will have many different types of pasta for your enjoyment. Mario said this is not Ragu so come and enjoy the real thing.
I am only 1/2 Italian. Thus, the one and a half Italian. My mother came to America from Italy when she was also seven years old in 1920. For my part of the dinner I will make my mother’s family Italian sausage recipe for Cudighi. I will also make Evie Tousignant’s Italian family sausage recipe and my own Italian sausage recipe. Evie gave me her recipe many years ago so I could make the sausage for her family members to enjoy. Now it’s your turn. The dinner will also feature a authentic Italian toss salad & garlic bread.
Serving will be from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. and will cost
$10.00 per adult and $5.00 per child from 6 to 12 years of age, under 6 is free.
Mario asked if we could donate the profits from this dinner to St. Thomas Aqunis Academy, so this night is also a fund raiser. The athletic club from St. Thomas will be having raffles throughout the night. The event will be open to the public so in-vite your friends to come out and enjoy a relaxing evening at the Marinette Moose Lodge
