Did you know that family recipes have their own genealogy? I thought I was skimming yet another back-of-the-magazine recipe in a special family cookbook when I Googled Johnny Mazetti, and then one of its key ingredients, Sauce Arturo. It wasn't as simple as I thought. And it made me wonder: did my grandmother pick this recipe up in the Midwest, or did my grandfather's mother pick it up in Panama? A rather big question! I will never find the true answer, but I have solved it to my own satisfaction, barring the additional commentary of food historians or members of the Marzetti family. Join me on the front porch for the story of Sauce Arturo, Teresa Marzetti's restaurant in Columbus, Ohio that became an empire, my mother's undying love for her family, and and my military family's love for Johnny Mazetti.
