Tagliatelle they are a very versatile dish, which goes well with meat, fish or vegetable sauces. They are prepared with flour and eggs and precisely in the choice of flours you can play to give the tagliatelle a more delicate or decisive taste. We tasted them with spelled seasoned with a sauce of courgettes, courgette flowers and lavender flowers, prepared by Vanessa Visconti, chef and director of Cabbages in snack, a restaurant as well as a cooking school, located in the quiet of a late '700 building, in Corso Magenta, one of the most beautiful areas of Milan.

Spelled and lavender, for a very summery taste

The burnished color of the tagliatelle and the deep purple lavender flowers are a striking color combination that immediately gives the heat of summer, first to the eyes and then to the mouth. The combination of chopped lavender flowers to add to the zucchini sauce leaves a delicate yet recognizable flavor in the mouth, especially thanks to the use of fresh, fragrant flowers. The result is a refined, balanced and fresh dish, absolutely irresistible. That deserves the right pairing with wine.

The recipe for spelled and lavender noodles

Mix 600 g of spelled flour with 400 g of semolina on a pastry board. Add 8 eggs and knead quickly with your fingers or with a planetary mixer, until the dough is compact and elastic. Wrap it with plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge for 2 hours. At this point, roll it out with the help of a rolling pin on a floured surface, in a long and thin strip, which you can insert into the special machine to roll out the dough. Once you have obtained a thin sheet, fold it over on itself and with the help of a knife cut it into strips of the same width. If you have the special appliance to be mounted on the planetary motor, this operation will be done in an instant! Leave the tagliatelle on a floured surface and prepare the sauce. In a saucepan, sauté two cloves of garlic in a little oil. Once they are browned, add the washed and sliced ​​courgettes and cook for about 20 minutes. Seven minutes before turning off the heat add the courgette flowers. Now prepare the Parmesan cream, whisk together in a bowl, the grated Parmesan and the milk: pour them a little at a time and blend, so you can decide the consistency to be given to the cream. Put a pan with water on the fire and when it is boiling add salt and dip the noodles. Add a drop of oil to the water to prevent it from sticking to each other. After a few minutes, drain them and prepare the dishes: on the bottom, place a few spoonfuls of Parmesan cream, then pour the tagliatelle and then the zucchini sauce. Finish with a generous sprinkling of chopped lavender flowers. Bring to the table very hot.

And now the wine….

A delicate dish like that of lavender noodles should be accompanied with a fresh, fragrant and persistent wine. The ideal combination is with La Ferola, a Passerina from the Marche winery Costadoro, a wine with a straw yellow color, which releases aromas of yellow pulp fruit, citrus and in the mouth it has a pleasant freshness and minerality. Serving temperature 10 °.
