Tonight I made one of the more unusual dishes I've ever attempted: timpano. I did the recipe straight-up, piling genoa salami, provolone cheese, hard-boiled eggs (yeah, I know), meatballs, pasta, and sauce into a dome crust. This recipe has a rep as a chef-killer, but astoundingly, it came out perfect.

If a bit late. Note the time.

Those are 4-inch tiles you see, there.
