He drives Ragusana away
The scaccia from Ragusa is probably the best known specialty you can find in all the rotisseries. It is a kind of focaccia that is filled in the most varied ways, for example with ricotta alone, or with sausage and aubergines.
Breaded and pastizzi
Breadcrumbs have a different shape and taste than scacce and are filled with meat or fish, while pastizzi have a vegetable filling. Another specialty is “U pastizzu di Modica”, a tasty focaccia prepared with a very crumbly pasta with oil and a filling of cabbage, sausage and caciocavallo. Furthermore, you cannot leave Sicily without having a feast of the famous rice balls, a real delight.
You cannot miss the fresh homemade pasta accompanied prepared with different ingredients. For example, we tried the ravioli stuffed with ricotta with pork sauce, a very typical and delicious dish. Another typical dish is macco di fave, a thick and delicious bean soup or pasta with capuliato, prepared with chopped dried tomatoes.
As for meat, the typical dishes are stuffed hen, tripe alla ragusana and rabbit alla pattuisa (baked rabbit with potatoes). Pork is a must, which is prepared in various ways and is the main dish above all of Chiaramonte Gulfi .
Of course in Ragusa as in all of Sicily you cannot fail to eat fresh fish. A typical dish of these areas is fried fish, which is also served in the typical cone-shaped foil.
