Cassatelle or sometimes called casateddi, are deep-fried Italian pastries that consist of a sugary filling enclosed within two thin layers of dough, often enriched with white wine or Marsala. Cassatelles are considered to be the sweet version of ravioli pasta.
Cassatelle originated from the Sicilian province of Trapani, where this delicious pastry is traditionally prepared with a lemon-flavored filling; a combination of ricotta cheese and chocolate drops. Cassatelle is usually prepared for the Carnival and during the months leading up to Easter. These deep-fried pastries are best enjoyed while still warm when the exterior is firm and crispy. These are typically served dusted with powdered sugar or cinnamon.
