The culurgione is a filled hand made pasta, from Sardinia, Italy.

The typical product is guaranteed by the research of the ingredients, particularly flour, cheese, potatoes and mint, all strictly local.

My family Recipe

Dough ingredients:
250 gr. semolina
250 gr. white flour all purpose
3 tbs extra olive oil
1 ts salt
warm water as you need

Filling ingredients:
4 medium gold potato
50 gr. brine fresh sheep cheese
50 gr. pecorino cheese
fresh mint
4 tbs extra olive oil
1 clove chopped garlic

Mix together  semolina, flour, olive oil and salt, and slowly warm water until have a elastic and no sticky dough. Leave the pasta cover for 30 minutes.

Boil the potato in salt water, peel and mashed them. Add the cheese, fresh mint, garlic and the olive oil. Mix and add salt if needed. Leave the filling to rest for 60 minutes.

Roll the dough flat and cut disks 8 cm in diameter. Put the filling in the centre and fold it closing the dough edge pinching with the fingers.

Boil them in salt water until tender.

The best way to enjoy culurgiones is with a fresh tomato sauce with onion and basil, or a nice light ragù.

You can also freeze the uncooked culurgiones and cook them when you like put them in boil water without defrost them.
