PREPARATION

For the pasta
1

In order to make casoncelli start preparing the fresh egg pasta: in a bowl add the durum wheat semolina, the 00 flour and an egg. Whisk everything with a fork and add the remaining ingredients.

2

Knead well the mixture by using your hands and if it seems hard, add some water in order to soften it, until you obtain a solid dough.

3

At this point, let it rest in fridge for about 40 minutes by wrapping it in transparent film.

For the filling

In the meantime, cut the meat into cubes. Prepare a mixture of finely chopped celery, carrots and onions, add the meat and deglaze with white wine.

5

Once cooked, let it cool down and then grind it by adding some amaretti.

6

Knead everything with the eggs, Grana Padano, breadcrumbs, chopped parsley and a pinch of nutmeg. Mix everything well.

7

At this point, roll the pasta out in thin rectangular layers by using a special machine and place in row the filling dabs. Now start giving the typical shape of casoncelli.

8

Once ready, cook them in boiling water for about 5 minutes.

In the meantime, start preparing the seasoning: in a pan melt some butter, add the finely chopped pancetta and some sage leaves. Cook everything until the pancetta gets brown.

At this point, drain the casoncelli and transfer them in the freshly prepared seasoning. Mix everything well in order to amalgamate the flavours and transfer everything in a serving plate with an abundant sprinkling of Grana Padano.
