Menu di Pasqua a Casa Nostra
Menu for Easter at our house- the Easter meal is usually centered around a baby lamb - we had a whole baby goat from a cheesemaker in Cascia.
Colazione (breakfast): the ONE and ONLY day of the year that Italians don't eat sweets for breakfast - I don't know why...
La Coratella - goat innard stew
Pizza di Pasqua- a bread made with lots of cheese and lard hard boiled eggs - I had colors sent from the States
Vernaccia - sweet wine from our town, Cannara
Pranzo (lunch): the main meal of the day
Paparadelle with goat and artichoke ragu
fried goat chops
Cena (dinner): if you can still eat...
boiled asparagus with lemon and olive oil
La Colomba - a sweet bready cake shaped like a dove
Pasquetta (the day after Easter):
roasted split goat head
