At La Cucina Italiana for 90 years we have been doing this inspired by tradition, experimenting with new cooking techniques and new flavors. We work respecting the environment, food and health and with this recipe we do it alongside Edison, who has been creating energy for over 135 years, and aims to explain how to consume less and better.

Ingredients for 6 people

200 g of octopus
2 avocado
50 g parsley
20 g of mint
1 lemon
20 g pitted black olives


For the octopus
Clean the octopus by removing the beak and the eyes, then turn the head upside down to remove the sand residues. Fill the pressure cooker with water and dip the clean octopus in it and close it. When the pot starts to whistle count 20 minutes.
Once the cooking time is over, open the pan and allow it to open, but leave the octopus immersed for at least another 10 minutes.
Cut the octopus into small pieces and sauté in a pan over high heat with a little oil until it becomes crisp.

For the avocado
Take the ripe avocado, cut it in half and remove the stone.
Take half of the lawyer, cut it and season with lemon, oil, salt and pepper. Then whisk it and place the cream in the fridge well covered with plastic wrap.
Cut the other half into thin slices and season with lemon, oil, salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.

To serve
Chop the parsley and mint very finely.
Put a spoonful of avocado cream on the plate, place a few pieces of octopus on top, sprinkle with chopped parsley and spices. Next, arrange the avocado slices and finish the dish with half-cut Taggiasca olives. Serve immediately with a drizzle of oil and grated lemon rind at the time.

Put the ingredients for the sauce in a pan of about 32 × 25 cm and mix.
Level the surface and cook in a preheated oven at 250 ° C for about 20 minutes.

Once the meat is cooked and has left a nice sauce on the bottom, take the pan back and stir.
Add the pasta (still raw), the hot broth and the cream and stir again, trying to cover the pasta with the sauce as much as possible.
Put the pan back in the oven, lower the temperature to 200 ° C, and cook for 25 minutes, stirring a few times during cooking.

Finally take the pan again, add the diced provolone and stir, then sprinkle the surface with Parmesan and pecorino and cook for another 5 minutes, with the temperature again at 250 ° C and in grill mode, so as to create a beautiful tasty crust.

Your clever baked pasta is ready: let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
