Buckwheat Pizzoccheri

Pizzoccheri al Grano Saraceno

Pizzoccheri is a northern Italian type of short tagliatelle made with whole-wheat durum semolina, buckwheat flour and durum wheat semolina. It originates in Valtellina, a valley at the very top of Lombardy. The distinguished hearty flavor and coarse texture of this buckwheat pasta marries perfectly with potatoes, cabbage and butter to make a rich and satisfying dish.

Not far from Lake Como are the steep valleys of the Valtellina. Just north of Milan you can find this beautiful, mountainous area where the food is hearty and strictly local. Pizzoccheri is an old-fashioned dish classically served with potatoes and savoy cabbage. Depending on the season and availability, ether Swiss chard or green beans can be used as an alternative. Vegetables and pasta are cooked together in one pot. The pasta is then sautéed in butter with garlic and sage, and then topped with abundant shavings of Valtellina Casera cheese and grated Grana Padano cheese.
