Malloreddus with Aromatic Sausage Ragù, Pecorino Cream & Pecorino

Malloreddus hail from the Italian island of Sardegna, where it has been made 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 pasta 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 rifle shots. 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. We keep our recipe very traditional, so it is almost like you are eating it on the warm island itself.
