The first Sicilian Cassata, apparently, was quite simple. A sort of short pastry casing filled with sweetened ricotta cheese and then baked. A turning point came with the creation of pasta reale or Martorana: a mixture of almond flour and sugar, coloured in green using extracts of various herbs. Almond paste replaced shortcrust pastry, and from cassata baked in the oven was passed to cassata made cold.
