Malloreddus alla Campidanese with Sausage Ragù & Pecorino Cream

Malloreddus hail from the Italian island of Sardegna where they have been made for special occasions for centuries. The diminutive of malloru ('bull’ in Sardinian dialect), malloreddus means 'fat little calves’.

Traditionally, on her wedding night, a Sardinian bride will parade through town wearing silver jewellery, carrying a large basket of malloreddus that she has made by hand. She is closely followed by her family until she reaches the doorstep of her betrothed, who scares off her entourage with rifleshots. The bride then enters, eating her malloreddus from the same plate as her new husband.

We pair our malloreddus with campidanese sauce, a traditional Sardinian ragù made with sausage, tomatoes and saffron. Sabrina, who leads our kitchen team at Pasta Evangelists, comes from Sardegna, guaranteeing the quality of our malloreddus.
