is a simple and light dessert known throughout Italy, but is particularly common in Sicily, Valle d'Aosta and Sardinia.
Already known in the Middle Ages, according to some it was imported by the Arabs, and this widespread in Sicily. The main ingredients are sugar and starch milk. But there are several variants with almond milk instead of cow's milk, with the flour instead of 'starch.
You can also add a vanilla bean and decorate with chopped almonds or pistachio.
