Casoncelli

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a recipe for a pasta dish from Bergamo called casoncelli. My wife and I had the dish when visiting Italy a year ago, and I want to try to recreate it at home.

Do you have a recipe in English?

Or, do you know how I can easily translate this?

Casoncelli alla Bergamasca

Da preparare in circa 50 minuti

Ingredienti per 6/8 persone

Pasta: 400 gr di farina, 100 gr di semola di grano duro, 2 uova.

Ripieno: 125 gr di pane grattugiato, 1 uovo, 70 gr di grana grattugiato, 150 gr di macinato per salame, 100 gr di carne bovina arrostita, 5 gr di amaretti, 10 gr di uva sultanina, 1/2 pera spadona o abate, uno spicchio di aglio tritato, un cucchiaio di prezzemolo tritato, sale, pepe.

Condimento: 80 gr di burro, 100 gr di pancetta tagliata a bastoncini, 100 gr di grana grattugiato, alcune foglie di salvia.

Amalgamate sulla spianatoia la farina, la semola, le uova, un pizzico di sale e aggiungete acqua quanto basta ad ottenere un composto omogeneo, quindi lasciatelo riposare per almeno mezzora. Nel frattempo preparate il ripieno, fate rosolare con una noce di burro il macinato per salame, la pera sbucciata e tritata, quindi unitevi la carne arrostita, l'aglio il prezzemolo e fate insaporire alcuni istanti. Versate il tutto in una terrina, unitevi il grana, il pangrattato, le uova, gli amaretti sbriciolati, l’uvetta tritata, una macinata di pepe e un pizzico di sale. Amalgamate l’impasto: se risultasse troppo asciutto aggiungete un goccio di brodo o acqua. Stendete la sfoglia, ritagliate dei dischi di 6/8 cm distribuitevi al centro un cucchiaio di ripieno, quindi piegate il disco di pasta sul ripieno, chiudete il bordo, ripiegate la parte ripiena sul bordo e pressate leggermente al centro. Lessate i casoncelli in acqua bollente salata, scolateli e disponeteli su di un piatto da portata, cospargeteli con il grana grattugiato e conditeli con il burro cotto a color nocciola insieme alla salvia e alla pancetta. Servite subito.

Il tutto accompagnato da un buon vino Barolo

Casoncelli alla Bergamasca

Ingredienti per 6/8 persone – for 6 to 8 people

400 grams of flour (double 00 in Italy - in the USA if you can’t find OO Italian flour use 1/3 cake flour with 2/3 unbleached all purpose flour) 100 grams of semolina flour and 2 eggs

Stuffing: 125 grams bread crumbs, 1 egg, 70 grams of grated grana cheese (use parmigiano if you can’t find grana here), 150 grams of ground salami, 100 grams chopped roast beef, 5 grams of gound Amaretti cookies, 10 grams of chopped raisins, ½ pear peeled and seeded and chopped, one chopped garlic clove, a tablespoon o choppedf parsley, salt and pepper –( all chopped and mixed - I would use a food processor)

Sauce: 80 grams of butter, 100 grams of Italian bacon (or American bacon boiled for 2 minutes and drained) cut into thin strips, 100 grams of grated grana cheese (use same as above), and some fresh sage leaves. (Please note you are going to brown the butter with the sage leaves later on)

After you have mixed the flour, semolina flour, egg and salt with enough water to make the dough smooth leave it to rest for a 1/2 hour – (see Marcella Hazan’s Classic Italian Cookbook or other top Italian cookbook for a step by step explanation of how to make pasta)

In the meantime prepare the stuffing. Put all the stuffing ingredients listed above in a food processor and chop finely. (Remember to put the hard to chop ingredients in first- chop – then add more – add eggs and liquids at the end)

If the mixture is too dry add a little water or broth. Roll out the dough very thinly (I suggest a pasta rolling machine here- again look up a good recipe for making stuffed pasta for examples) and cut into discs of 6 to 8 cm., place in the middle of each disk a tablespoon of stuffing, fold over the disc and seal the edges (use a fork and a little water), fold the stuffed part of the disc again by pressing lightly on the center.

Put the finished casoncelli in boiling salted water. Meanwhile cook the sauce by sautéing the butter, sage and pancetta in a sauté pan and cook until the butter is light brown. Toss the cooked caconcelli with the sauce and the cheese and serve immediately.

Serve with a good Barolo wine.

These "translations" are hilarious...

50 tiny Ingredients for 6/8 persons
a pizzico of knows them
the fairies to insaporire some moments

at least the software got this right:

The all accompanied one from a good Barolo wine

From my limited Italian, this is a sort of ravioli. Make a basic egg pasta, roll it out, cut into disks.

The filling is bread crumbs, egg, grated Parm (grana means hard, 'granular' cheese, not grain), chopped salami, minced roast beef (from leftover roast), raisins, crumbled amaretti cookies, pear, a little garlic, some parsley, salt and pepper.

The sauce (condimento) is browned butter with more grated Parm, roasted pancetta, and sage leaves.

And I expect an invitation for this Zebster, provided it's Mrs. A who is cooking!

      I'll be in Naples for a few days next month and I wanted to try something traditional, and my friend recommended trying parmigiana. She said she loved it, but the problem is that she ate it at her Italian friend's house, and I won't be able to have that exact parmigiana. So, I did some research online and found a few restaurants that have good ratings and are serving allegedly great eggplant casserole. This place is 4 stars rated, but people seem not to agree whether the parmigiana is good or not.... On the other hand, this place has a great rating, appears when searching for the parmigiana, but nobody seems to write about it in their reviews. Finally, this one is said to have the best parmigiana in Naples (or in the world, for that matter), and I wanted to know if anyone had the so-called world's best?
      I would really appreciate if you could help me make the decision. Looking forward to your advice!

      I recently took a trip to Northern Italy, and was delighted to find that the cappuccino everywhere was just wonderful, without exception. Smooth, flavorful, aromatic perfect crema, strong but not too strong.
      Aside from the obvious answer (duh, Italians created cappuccino ), what makes Italian capp so fantastic, and how do I duplicate the effect here?
      I'm wondering if it's the water, the way the coffee is ground or stored, the machines used....I'm baffled.
      Also noticed that the serving size tended to be smaller than what I'm used to -- i.e. a small teacupful vs. a brimming mug or Starbucks supersize. Not sure why that is either.
      Grazie mille for any insight on this!

      The Modernist Cuisine team is currently traveling the globe to research pizza and different pizza styles for our next book Modernist Pizza.  Nathan and the team will be in São Paulo and Buenos Aires soon. We'd love hear from the eGullet community—what pizzerias should they visit while they're there? You can read more about our next book Modernist Pizza here. Thanks in advance, everyone!

      My article was published (my first one!)! Hooray! And I do have some Florentine restaurant recommendations including the new Osteria del Pavone which is amazing--lampredotto ravioli is now a thing and it must be tried.
