What are the origins of a Sicilian scacciata? A Scacciata originates in Catania, Sicily (which is about 2 hours from my dad’s hometown) and it has a long history. It goes way back to around the 17th century and the House of Paternò Castello. The humble scacciata was put together as a peasant meal, filled with whatever ingredients were on hand.
