Snails with Fettuccine in a Bright Tomato Sauce {Recipe}

I distinctly recall the first time I ate snails: I was 9 years old and my then BFF, Elizabeth, was taking me to dinner at her favourite local restaurant, Francesco’s and we would be eating snails and veal Milanese because those were Liz’s favourites and that was that.
