I tell you this recipe

The soup “appraga cuckolds" ("satisfies cuckolds") is a dish very quick and the women of Sezze did when for one reason or another were reduced to tight deadlines to prepare food for their husbands, this soup then represented an excellent solution. They could achieve this in a short time and satisfy the appetite and the throat of the men who were returning from work.
The soup has this name because it is said that, while their husbands were going to the fields to work, women, after cleaning the house, they spent much of their time with young lovers so when it came meal time there was nothing ready, then needed something very quick to cook.
Another hypothesis is that women spent a lot of time gossiping in the alleys of the country (and not with lovers), and that at some point when they realized that he was late they said something like: "Tocca, iamo a fa 'caccosa da magna’ a quigli cornuti (cuckolds)", senno’ chi i vo' senti ...”, or “Come on, we're going to prepare something to eat at those cuckolds (not in the literal sense, but as a way of saying) otherwise who wants to hear them complain”. Whatever the real version, it is certain that when the husbands came back tired from work (“cuckolds” or not) were always a bowl of hot soup that paid them the fatigue of the day.
