Frecantò, fricandò, or fricò di verdure: these are only some of the names of this traditional dish from the Marche region, which consists of a mix of stewed vegetables.

As for the more known French ratatouille, frecantò also has poor origins. In fact, in the Marche region, the vergara (term of the regional dialect for housewife) used to make this rich side dish using all the seasonal vegetables she had at her disposal in her garden, steamed in a pan or cooked in the oven.

Usually, the ingredients for this recipe are onions, carrots, celery, potatoes, aubergines, bell peppers, courgettes, and tomatoes.
