Elena Suppa’s Spicy Nduja Penne w/ Stracciatella & Pecorino Romano CheeseThis recipe was submitted by Elena Suppa for the My Colavita Meal Challenge. Notes from the recipe author below.
A really simple but unbelievably delicious dish that comes together within 30 minutes but tastes like you’ve been cooking it for hours! The combo of the sweet crushed tomatoes, the flavourful Italian extra virgin olive oil and the spicy Nduja salami which melts right in there, creates such a deliciously spicy & flavourful sauce. The Pecorino Romano Cheese, a bold cheese which I prefer on pasta, along with the mild and creamy Stracciatella cheese takes this dish to another level! By the way, the gluten free pasta is so amazing! The same texture and taste as regular pasta in my family’s opinion! I loved the whole process of coming up with and creating different dishes with Colavita’s premium quality products! Sometimes we are rushed for time so I wanted to create a dish that was simple, quick & super delicious. This recipe is all that and then some!

This easy recipe allows the passionate but busy home chef with little time to spare (but a burning desire to cook a healthy, hearty and quick autumn dinner), to throw together a gourmet dinner on a whim, without any fuss or compromise on flavor.
Detroit PizzaA classic Detroit pizza is made in a pan. It uses two kinds of cheese: mozzarella and “brick” cheese. Brick cheese is like a cheddar or limburger and is so named because it comes in a brick shape. In this recipe, the cheese goes directly on top of the dough and along the sides, so you get a crispy, cheesy outer pizza crust and a pizza dough that doesn’t get soggy from tomatoes.
