Pane carasau, also called carta (or fogli) di musica, meaning “music paper,” is found on nearly every Sardinian table. Said to have been first made many centuries ago in the harsh, mountainous Barbagia region in east-central Sardinia, it is unleavened and crisp and parchment thin, hence its name. It can be eaten as a kind of cracker, with shards broken off the large irregular rounds in which it is baked, but it is often moistened before eating. A common way of eating pane carasau, however, is in the form of pani frattàu — almost a kind of lasagna. For more ideas, check out some of our best lasagna recipes.
