Curious. I've seen chicken Scarpariello and now papparedelle Scarpariello... and the Torre Scarpariello, outside Amalfi, is where the missus and I honeymooned.

Does anyone more familiar with things Italian know where the term's culinary use originates? Google ain't helping.

1) Dunno but I'll check some of my cookbooks this weekend and see if anything turns up.

I don't know where it originated, but I can tell you two things. First, "Scarpariello" means shoemaker. And second, I have never seen either dish in Italy (and I have eaten a whole lot of food in Italy), but I have seen the chicken one in Italian restaurants in Rhode Island.
