sausage from the Dolomite valleys

A traditional fresh sausage without a casing; usually a mixture of pork, beef and spices, but recipes differ from one kitchen to another. Sometimes eaten raw, but usually grilled for sandwiches, or as a main course with polenta.

Belluno puts on a festival in its honour in late October called 'Pastin in Piazza'.
