    3                    Adult Alligators
   50      pound         Canned whole tomatoes
   15      pound         Zucchini sliced
   10      pound         Sliced onions
    3      can           Black pitted olives sliced
    1      cup           Salt
    1      cup           Black pepper
      1/2  cup           Crushed red pepper
    4      cup           Oregano
    4      cup           Diced fresh parsley
    1      package       Bay leaves (small box)
   20      pound         Assorted green & Red
    4      cup           Vegetable oil
    1      Whole         bulb of garlic
 peppers Alligators... Discard head, feet and tail. Wash and cut into
 individual portions. (so how much do 3 adult alligators weigh anyway?)
 Borrow, beg or steal huge cooking pot. Use medium heat for oil and garlic.
 Add alligator portions, turning often. Add tomatoes, bring to boil, simmer,
 add salt, pepper, red pepper, oregano, bay leaves, and parsley.
 Cover and simmer for 2 1/2 hours. Last 30 minutes add onions, peppers,
 zucchini. Last 5 min. add sliced olives. Serve with salad topped with
 favorite Italian dressing and crisp bread.
 “New Orleans Cooks The Italian Way” Locovozzi & Mollicone (note: this is a
 real recipe and there is a whole Italian area of New Orleans which as you
 can see is spicy like cajun, but truely Italian. I have though of ways to
 make this with some other meat, because we just don't have alligators in
 Milwaukee! Maybe buffalo?) Courtesy of Shareware RECIPE CLIPPER 1.2
