Pasta with ricotta cheese, mortadella and pistachio of Bronte Dop: simple, delicious and very fast to prepare. I am sure that if you try the recipe for this first course you will thank me and redo it very often, because it's very lively and delicate, despite the presence of mortadella, which is browned in a little butter.
The time of preparation? The cooking of pasta: 8 minutes (if you eat pasta al dente). You just have to work ricotta with Parmigiano Reggiano, nutmeg and a little’ of the pasta cooking water. Brown the striped mortadella and sprinkle the dish with plenty of pistachio grains. I use sheep's cottage cheese as always, with the most decisive taste, but you can also use cow ricotta if you prefer a more delicate taste.

Boil the pasta in salted water. While the pasta is cooking, cut the mortadella into strips (like it's cheek or bacon) and brown it for 2 minutes over a high heat in a pan with a butter nut or a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
Work sheep's ricotta with grated Parmigiano Reggiano Dop, fresh ground black pepper and nutmeg. Taste to see if you need to add a pinch of salt: usually sheep's cottage cheese is quite savory, but if you use that vaccination it might help. Add a ladle of pasta cooking water, you have to get a soft cream.
Drain the pasta al dente, sauté it in the pan with the mortadella and keep on fire off with the ricotta. Add, if the cream is not fluid enough, a little more cooking water. Serve the pasta in the individual holies and complete the dish with plenty of lightly toasted pistachio grains and black pepper. Bon appétit!
