0 comments

When the cold seasons arrive, the desire to pamper oneself with a dish that manages to warm the body and spirit grows.

In this, Sicilian cuisine really has a lot to offer, as it draws on a truly extraordinary poor and peasant tradition.


Pane Cotto Siciliano is a delicious Sicilian-style cooked bread soup.

 

 

It is also a way to recycle stale bread.

Of course, for the end result to be perfect, it is best that you choose a bread made of wheat flour.

We also added good grated pecorino cheese to the recipe.

If you like, you can complete with flavorings of your liking and even a little chili pepper.

You will feel the goodness.

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • .2 cups of stale bread
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 cup of Pecorino cheese
  • 1 cup of tomato sauce
  • 2 cups of water
  • extra virgin olive oil to taste
  • pepper and salt to taste

 

DIRECTIONS:

To make Pane Cotto Siciliano, you must first cut the bread into pieces.

Set it aside.

Clean the garlic, then brown it in a pan with the oil.

Be sure to use a large enough pan.

Pour in the tomato sauce.

Cook for a few minutes.

Add the water and bay leaf.

Adjust the salt and pepper, then add the bread pieces.

Bring to a boil and cook for as long as it takes for the starch in the bread to take on a gelatinous consistency.

All the bread should be well soaked.

Stir with a spoon.

Plate by adding grated pecorino cheese.

If you like, add chili and another round of raw oil.
