Ripieno Di Cacciagione


1 squab or another type of game
3 tbs. oil
1 tbs. butter
2 oz. grated Parmigiano
2 eggs
5 oz. bacon, diced

How to make the RIPIENO DI CACCIAGIONE – Game Stuffing:

Clean the squab, salt the inside and fill in with the sage, rosemary, and diced bacon.

Heat the oil and butter in a pan and saute the squab. Finish cooking in the oven. When the squab is done, bone and skin it and put it through a food mill.

Mix together with Parmigiano, eggs, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Keep in a cool place until ready to use. This stuffing is used for tortelli or ravioli, which should be served in capon broth or, if a sauce is desired, an herb sauce is best.
