INGREDIENTS

  • 1 diced onion
  • 4 cups cream
  • 10.5 oz julienne-cut speck Alto Adige PGI
    (alternatively, Prosciutto di Parma PDO can be a great substitute)
  • 10.5 oz grated Pistacchio verde di Bronte PDO nuts
  • 14 oz short pasta
  • Piave PDO cheese shavings

Preparation:

Soften the onion with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil in a saucepan. Add the cubed speck and brown quickly.

In the meantime cook the pasta in boiling salt water. Combine pasta and sauce and sauté for a minute.

Serve after having dressed the plate with shavings of Piave Vecchio cheese.
