In this recipe from the region of the Abruzzo, cheese and eggs are beaten together with lemon juice to create a rich sauce to accompany the lamb. It is often served as part of the Easter feast in some parts of the south, and the ingredients are chosen as symbols of this important time in the Christian calendar. The primary ingredients are lamb, symbolic of the sacrifice of God’s son; eggs, representing rebirth and the resurrection of Jesus; and vegetables, celebrating the return of the fertility of spring.
