Creste di Gallo, Olives & Red Pepper Cream

Serves 1-2

This recipe is surprisingly simple to prepare, yet results in a sophisticated and luxurious dish. The star of the show is Nduja, a spreadable pork salami with a fiery kick, balanced here by the sweet notes of a creamy Red Bell Pepper Pesto. We provide fresh Create di Gallo, made in our London pastificio, as well as the Taggiasche Olives and Red Bell Pepper Pesto, made by Frantoio Sant’Agata, a small oil mill on the Ligurian Coast.

All you need is Nduja, a splash of white wine, and a handful of spinach leaves to make this beautiful dish.

About Creste di Gallo, Olives & Red Pepper Cream

Prepare: 1 min
Cooking: 10 mins

Start by preparing the sauce; warm one heaping tablespoon of Nduja in a frying pan on medium heat. Once melted, add a splash of white wine and mix well.
Once the white wine has reduced by half, add your olives and some of their fragrant oil from the jar. Let the sauce gently simmer.
Meanwhile, bring 2.5 litres of salted water to a boil in a large saucepan. Put in the Creste di Gallo and cook for 3-4 minutes.
Transfer the cooked pasta into the bubbling sauce with a slotted spoon, making sure some of the starchy pasta water makes it in as well. Add the Red Bell Pepper Pesto and gently mix. Add a couple of tablespoons of pasta water to loosen the sauce if it is too dry.
Garnish with a few leaves of fresh spinach and a sprinkle of Parmigiano Reggiano over the top.
Once the pasta is well coated, remove your frying pan from the heat and sprinkle a handful of Parmiggiano Reggiano. Toss until the creamy sauce comes together.
Buon Appetito!
