Jill's Chicken Tettrazini

My family took a year-long Italian detour soon after I graduated from college. I loved everything about this surreal place - the food, the art, and the men … at least until I learned that most Italian males remained mama’s boys for life. My mom & I were there on my dad’s coattails and witnessed “Coach Sy” transform an unlikely American football troop of Italians into a winning team. Who knew there was such a thing as an Italian superbowl? I was a bystander, of course, and watched as Coach Sy swiftly became a sports celebrity and took his Bologna Towers to the superbowl in Rome - A battle with the Gladiatores, no less.
