Super Easy Super Delicious Fruit Crostata from Rome – family Garassini

20150523_17043620150523_162730 20150523_161222 My good friend Laura Garassini in Rome gave me this family recipe from her sister Carla.  I made this and brought it to friends tonight and they loved it!  I loved it! And it is so easy!  You just have to have a good marmalade since that’s the main ingredient.
