Spaghetti with creamy white turnip, Prosciutto and crispy cabbage: Today a dish very tasty and different than usual, delicate flavor but glutton. They are spaghetti with a creamy white turnips, accompanied by raw ham and cabbage crispy. Is’ a plate decidedly winter, but colorful and cheerful. The turnip puree is very good and I think it replaces admirably and in a light cheese spreads and even the cream, especially if it accompanied with something tasty and tangy like ham or bacon or pancetta. must try.

THE PAIRING: A tasty recipe and vegetal scents deserves a white wine. We choose from one of the varieties that best express themselves in South Tyrol. For this reason, we suggest the Pinot Blanc ‘Dellago‘, product from Bolzano Cellar. Is’ a fresh wine, from apple and pear scents, with a pleasant minerality.
