Cappelletti with broth are a traditional recipe of Ferrarese cuisine.

Their characteristic shape comes from Greek  mythology: they look like a belly button, and they are referred to Venus's navel.
Cappelletti are a typical Christmas dish, slightly different fro their shape and substance from the more common tortellini. According to tradition, different families use different recipes: the delicious "batù" (a tasty meat filling) is prepared using the very deepest
cook's secrets.
