Creste di Gallo, Olives & Red Pepper Cream

This surprisingly simple to prepare yet refined recipe uses Nduja, a spicy spreadable pork salami with a fiery kick. When balanced with the slightly sweet notes of our creamy Bell Pepper Pesto, the complex flavours add to the luxurious appeal of this dish, allowing you to turn any supper into a special occasion.

We’ve paired up the majority of the ingredients here, all you need is Nduja, a splash of white wine and a handful of spinach leaves to make this beautiful dish.

How to prepare our Creste Di Gallo, Nduja & Red Pepper Cream.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Garnish with a few leaves of fresh spinach and a sprinkle of Parmigiano Reggiano over the top.
  6. 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.
  7. Buon Appetito!
