It packs in Brisighella traditionally the "spoja gross" which is a handmade pasta with the same ingredients of other pastries traditional Romagna (Cappelletti, noodles, noodles ...), but it is cut into small forms, small squares, filled with cheese squaquarone parmesan and left almost joined together, not separated as cappelletti or ravioli.
The women sewed the "spoja gross" when they did not have the time to prepare a stuffed cappelletti requiring more elaborate, or to use the remains of the pastry for cappelletti.
