vecchia alla parmigiana

vegetable side dish, sometimes with horsemet

vechhia alla parmigiana

Also known as vécia this consists of sliced onion, garlic, parsley celery tomatoes and peppers, cooked in butter over a slow fire, with potatoes fried in olive oil at the end.

Today in Parma, however, you're more likely to come across Vécia col pisst (or vecchia col pesto di cavallo), the version with ground horse meat, served as a main course.
