cabri à l’istrettu et petti morti

kid ragout with polenta

cabri à l’istrettu

Made with kid (or venison or young boar, marcassin) this stew also has tomatoes, olive oil, wine and a good half a head of garlic.

The ‘petti morti’ is the mound of corn polenta that goes with it, shaped into little mounds and baked in the oven, sometimes with grated cheese.
