Anatra in umido - Tacchino in umido

(Duck stew - Turkey stew)

These two domestic animals have a tasty and fatty meat and they produce a sauce which is a good seasoning for macaroni; the one of duck is more indicated to dress "tortelli di patate". Chop very finely celery, parsley, carrot and onion, then put all this stuff in a pan with oil, salt and pepper and on this layer of vegetables put the duck. Brown very well both sides of the duck. Add some tomato sauce or tomato purée diluted in tepid water and then cook the duck adding broth or water. When the duck is cooked remove the grease from the sauce, because it will be too greasy and dress the macaroni or "tortelli di patate".

If the sauce is not used to dress a first course, it can alternatively be used to cook vegetables previously boiled and then serve it as a seasoning for the duck. The same recipe can be used to cook the turkey.
