ficato di sette cannoli

/FEE-kah-toh dee SEHT-teh kahn-NOH-lee/

"Liver of Seven Cannons." Unexpectedly, this Sicilian dish contains no liver, but consists of slices of fried squash in a saucewith garlic, sugar and vinegar. It is named after a street of the same name in Palermo where a street vendor was unable to afford liver to put into a dish and sold it instead with only squash in a sweet and sour sauce.
