Help identifying a savory Italian Easter pastry

Niki in Dayton | Mar 24, 2009 07:33 AM

My mom used to make a stuffed, half-moon shaped savory pastry at Easter. Phonetically spelled, she called it "cad-ja-till". She'd complain that the dough was so stiff, she had to have my step-father knead it, and I recall that the dough was very yellow (so eggs or egg yolks). I'm pretty sure that ricotta cheese was one of the stuffing ingredients.

Any help identifying this long remembered childhood treat would be appreciated (and any pointers to where to find a recipe, as well). Thanks in advance!
