For a long time the colour chosen by Garibaldi for his soldiers’ uniforms was thought to imply values such as courage and sacrifice…then it became known that the choice had been fortuitous: That particular red canvas was a cheap lot bought by Garibaldi in Montevideo and originally destined for the working clothes of Buenos Aires butchers. Nevertheless, that colour inspired poor people to make important a humble leftovers dish of Livorno traditional cuisine.

Ingredients: Per 6 servings

  • 1 lb boiled meat
  • 1 lb potatoes, cut into small pieces
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • rosemary to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 canned tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste


In a large pan, brown the garlic in oil with a rosemary sprig, then add the potatoes and cook until almost done. Season with salt and add the tomatoes and a few spoonfuls of stock; finally add the boiled meat finely sliced, allow the flavours to blend and season with pepper to taste. Serve piping hot.
