Pizzoccheri recipe with cabbage and bitto


  • 70 g pizzoccheri
  • 50 g of cabbage leaves
  • 50 g potato
  • 25 g bitto
  • 20 g butter
  • 4 sage leaves
  • salt
  • pepper

To prepare the pizzoccheri with cabbage and bitto bring to a boil a pot of water, salt and then dip the potato cut into slices. After about 5 'add the pizzoccheri, cook for 6', add the cabbage leaves chopped and blanched, taking care to choose between the most tender and central. Finish cooking for another 5 minutes. Meanwhile, fry the sage leaves with butter in a small pan. Prepare the bitto cut into thin slices. Drain the pizzoccheri with the vegetables, sprinkle with the bitto, then complete with the hazelnut butter, caimi, the fried sage and a nice ground pepper. Bitto is a Valtellina cheese which is not easily repeatable, which can be replaced by fontina or other rather plain and rather tasty cheese. The pizzoccheri, also a typical specialty of Valtellina, are a kind of tagliatelle, prepared by mixing white flour and buckwheat flour. The latter gives them the characteristic brown color.
