Note 1: All measurements are estimates. Nonna tastes items as she cooks. She adds spices or oil or vinegar until she likes the marinade’s taste. The hot sauce is purely her taste preferences! Nono thought the lamb chops were delicious.

Note 2: I really do not know how much bread crumbs or pistachios Nonna used. However, like the marinade you can taste it to make sure the balance between all ingredients is what you like!
