fatty pork sausage
Also known in Basilicata as nnuglia or nnoglia, a rustic fatty pork sausage of offal meats, flavoured with fennel seeds and traditionally used for flavouring a ragú or soup. Today it's less fatty and can be grilled, or boiled with a pot of greens. In Calabria it's known as pizzitella; in Puglia it's pizzintella.
The pezzente della montagna materana is in the Ark of Taste.
Gorgoglione in the Basilicata holds a Sagra del Pezzente in August.
