Tortiglioni with cauliflower and Stracchino

Ingredients for 4 persons

360 g tortiglioni
half a cauliflower
200 g Nonno Nanni Stracchino
extra virgin olive oil as required
2 cloves of garlic
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste

Nonno Nanni Stracchino is a fresh, soft cheese with a unique flavour


Wash the cauliflower and blanch for about 10-15 minutes in salted boiling water. When blanched, drain and divide into florets.
In a large frying pan, lightly brown the garlic cloves with a little oil, then add the florets. Adjust with salt if necessary and sprinkle with a little freshly ground black pepper. Stir fry the cauliflower for a few minutes to flavour it, then remove the garlic.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta in plenty of salted water.
Place the Stracchino in a small bowl, add a few tablespoons of water from the pasta to soften it, and mix.
Drain the pasta and dress with the cauliflower, adding the Stracchino. Mix well and serve hot!
