Brodetto was made from
the catch of fish that was left behind in the net. As a result, every
village or city on the coast had its own recipe, like Brodetto Portorecantese
(with saffron) and brodetto from San Giorgio with peppers. Another recipe from Ancona is lasagna
used to be poor in parts of Italy,
especially in the south and old bread was not thrashed, but used to
bind the soup like also in
summer vegetable soup from
asparagus soup from
pappa al pomodoro.
