Google yourself a map of Italy and note “the boot” shape, which may be the only thing you remember from fifth-grade geography. Note the boot is kicking the island of Sicily (no matter, Sicily will kick it right back). At the furthest tip of that island away from the kicking boot is the town of Marsala, where the type of wine in the tiny bottle in your box originates. Long story to introduce this meal, right? Well, the homey, warm flavors of this skillet speak for themselves, in Italian and English. Plus, this meal is easier to make than any geography quiz is to take. Tip: if you're looking for the right texture for the sauce, dip a spoon in and see how well it sticks to the back. If it coats, you're good to go.
