fegatini

chicken livers

They're very fond of them in central Italy, grinding them up into a patè to spread on crostini. Elsewhere they might end up in a risotto or in pasta sauce, or cooked on a spit. Venetians sometimes use them instead of veal liver to make their beloved liver and onions: fegatini alla veneziana.
