“Think tradition – revive old family recipes and foodways”

And here we have…. BAKED ANELLETTI

Some specialities.. • Baked Anelletti is the most popular “baked pasta” in Palermo and it is made with a very specific pasta shape called anelletti (little rings). In Sicily it is often sold in cafés as “timbaletti” which are single portions that are shaped like a frustrum of a cone. When eaten at home, however, it is often made like a single “pasta cake” to be portioned and shared by the whole family. • People use to prepare it as a main course for a picnic, for the seaside or to the countryside. • It is a traditional dish and it has become very popular even in the version of the “Il Gattopardo”, the novel of Tomasi di Lampedusa

Ingredients (I) • 500 gr. Pasta “anelletti”, • 300 gr. ground veal (or a mix of minced veal and pork), • 3 cups tomato sauce, 1 medium onion, 1/2 carrot, 1/2 celery stalk, • 50 gr. butter, 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive, seed oil, basil and bay leaves, • 200 gr – “Primo sale” cheese cubed small

Ingredients (II)

• • • •

25 gr – 1/2 cup “Parmigiano reggiano” cheese and/or “Caciocavallo” cheese finely grated 250 gr. shelled peas, 2 spoons tomato concentrate, 1 large eggplant, 1 small glass of dry Marsala wine (or 1/2 glass of dry white wine), 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, sugar, salt and pepper to taste.

Preparation (I) Brown the minced celery, carrot and 1/2 onion in a saucepan with 1 tablespoon of butter and 2 tablespoons of oil; add the minced meat and brown. Add some wine and the peas and simmer for a couple of minutes. Dissolve the tomato concentrate in a cup of warm water: add salt and pepper sprinkle and cook at low heat, for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Wash the eggplant; cut off its steam, slice, put in a colander and sprinkle with coarse salt and let rest. After 1 hour rinse, dry and fry the eggplant in abundant seed oil; lay the slices on paper towels to drain excess fat.

Preparation (II) Brown the remaining onion, in a casserole with oil; add the tomato paste, a pinch of salt, a dash of pepper, a pinch of sugar and a handful of leaves of basil and bay. Mix and cook at medium heat for about twenty minutes. In the meantime, cook the pasta in plenty of salty water; cook “al dente” and drain, season with the sauce and the grated parmesan ( leave 1 spoonful). Pour half of this mixture in a buttered baking-pan sprinkled with breadcrumbs; cover with the meat sauce. Arrange in layers the eggplants, the sliced eggs and the “primosale” cheese. Cover with the remaining pasta and sprinkle with the parmesan and a handful of breadcrumbs. Top with bits of butter and bake for about 1 hour.

Other versions In some areas of Sicily baked pasta is enriched with bits of salami or sausage, ham, meatballs with peas in meat sauce instead of minced meat, boiled eggs, etc..
