Ingredients for 4 people

  • 500 grams of durum wheat flour
  • 150 grams of stale bread crumbs
  • Garlic
  • Ground red pepper (or otherwise local horseradish grated)
  • Local sheep milk cheese
  • Chopped walnuts
  • Oil from local oil-mill
  • Salt

Alternatively, it’s possible add to the previous ingredients a tomato sauce seasoned with pieces of pork (pigskin also called “nnoglia”, pigskin sausage, cutlets).


Prepare the dough with flour and water to get cylinders about 5 cm long and 1 cm in diameter; then pull them up using the “piece of iron”.

In a pan fry the garlic with the oil, together with the breadcrumbs.

Boil the pasta in abundant salt water, drain and pan-fry with the browned (and possibly with the tomato sauce seasoned with pieces of pork that has to be pre-cooked).

Serve the dish adding last of all a sprinkling of sheep cheese and chopped walnuts and, if you prefer, substitute the pepper with a pinch of grated horseradish.
