Ciao Everyone =)
Just wanted to share with you a typical dish you will find if and when you ever come to Sicily! It’s called Scacce and very typical of the town where I live. Scacce is dough that you run through a pasta maker to get it paper thin and then fill with yummy ingredients.
Some typical combinations:
-Ricotta, parsley and sausage (my favorite)
-Tomato sauce, parsley and onions
-Eggplant, tomato sauce, parley and onions
You could really put whatever you like inside, really. Here is Sicily though, women are very traditional so they don’t deviate much on the fillings. When these yummies comes out of the oven, or wood fire oven (to die for!) they are really delicious. Making Scacce is a time consuming process and so I leave it to my mother in law to make for us since she makes them better than I could ever anyway….just look at that picture of her Scacce!
So when is Sicily, be sure to try some Scacce, you won’t be disappointed!
P.S. If you would like to actually try making authentic scacce, my mother-in-law gave me her recipe, which I’ve included in my new e-book, so be sure to check it out!
