Ricotta & Spinach Pansoti with a Ligurian Walnut Sauce, Toasted Walnuts & Parmesan (v.)

This is a classic dish from Genova that is very rarely available in other parts of Italy, let alone outside of lo stivale (meaning 'the boot', i.e. Italy). Some people from outside of "Zena" (Genova in the Genovese dialect) call this sauce pesto di noci, which, for a born and bred Genovese like our founder Alessandro, is wrong. It is, more properly, salsa di noci (or sarsa de noxi in local Genovese).

Our salsa di noci is made with beautiful Sorrento walnuts sourced in Campania. It’s a simple but incredibly elegant sauce, highlighting the subtle flavour of the walnuts by quietly featuring fresh oregano, garlic and a drop of milk - which gives salsa di noci its remarkable velvet texture - in the background. Belin! (You may need to Google this - it’s another local Genovese term…)

The pansoti, literally ‘big bellies’, are chunky little paunches that hold the moist, soft ricotta & spinach, and complement the delicate, silky sauce. We have also added some crushed walnuts to offer a little crunch.
