Posts Tagged ‘Rotolo’

The other night I decided to have a go at making “Rotolo” — a rolled up pasta dish. This pasta is stuffed with butternut squash, spinach and ricotta. With the Texas heat reaching over 100 degrees everyday, I am trying to think of different ways to get through the hottest part of the day. One solution has been getting together with friends and cooking long meals (with a chilled glass of wine). So, my friend, Karla ( a food stylist here in San Antonio), and I took a recipe from Jamie Oliver’s Jamie’s Italy cookbook and gave Rotolo a shot.

Karla was in charge of the dough, which I am still a bit intimated by

Sliced and ready for the table with fresh grated Parmesan cheese and fried sage leaves. A great vegetarian dish, however, we did decide to serve it with steak and a beet salad. Very fun and super tasty!
