stracci

torn pasta, or thin pancakes

Stracci can be torn up pieces of lasagne, but they can also be thin pancakes (also known as antrodocani) filled cannelloni-style with meat, vegetables and cheese, layered in a pan with meat sauce and cheese and baked. Antrodoco, in Rieti province, holds a festival in their honour the first Sunday in August.
