    Stuffed
    Capon - Secondo

    This is the typical main course that is prepared in my family for the Christmas day, in particular it is typical of Campania in the southern part of Italy. The stuffing, with which you stuff the capon, is made of minced meat of veal and pork, eggs, Parmesan, raw ham and Bologna sausage. The capon stuffed is cooked in the tomato puree in order to obtain an excellent sauce ideal to dress the ravioli. The capon stuffed can be served with peas and raw ham.
