ORLANDO, Fla. — In this week’s Chef’s Kitchen, we’re celebrating Thanksgiving Italian-style with local icon Isabella Morgia di Vicari. Chef Isabella and her husband Jeff own The Meatball Stoppe, as featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
Chef Isabella is perhaps best known for her meatballs, but the one dish that warms her heart the most is a recipe coming from Mamma.
We’re not supposed to tell Mamma, but her daughter is revealing her secret ingredient (ahem — half and half). This Chicken Eggplant Parm recipe is jam-packed with love, tradition, joy, and famiglia.
