A New Years tradition in Italy, lentils and some sort of cotecino or zampone. Cotecino is a giant hot dog looking thing that comes in a bag. You place the bag in a giant pot of boling water and in about 10 minutes it's ready. Zampone is a similar type of thing but all the "meat" is stuffed back into a pig's leg/hoof and then cooked in the same manner. I think of it as a giant hot dog kicked up a notch as Emeril would say.
