rustic red radicchio PGI cake with ricotta and smoked cheese. A special pie but easy to accomplish, delicate and tasty at the same time. Of course, I advise you to prepare the pastry crust in the house, but if you prefer to save time and effort, you can use the ready, Also in puff pastry version if you feel like it. In the recipe I will explain how to proceed based on what you'll use. These tips also apply to all RICETTE OF QUICHES you find on the site, from the one with RICOTTA AND SPINACH the classic QUICHE LORRAINE that are in VIDEO RECIPE on my YouTube channel

For the rest, just you go and get a good cheese (for my sheep), smoked cheese and two beautiful fresh and crunchy clumps of red radicchio PGI. To learn more about the virtues of this wonderful salad I invite you to read my ARTICLE ABOUT LATE Radicchio IGP and watching the VIDEO OF THE PRODUCTION OF CHICORY. I'm sure you know how it grows and how it is processed the PGI radicchio will surprise no small.

If you do not want to do the decoration with radicchio, decorate it as if it were a normal sweet tart, with crossed strips of dough crust above: It will be very good!

And serve with a mixed salad with dried fruit, you will see that dinner!.Good day!

Can I make this ahead of time and then bake?

Ada Parisi 28 November 2019 - 12:58

Yes, half a day before, but you must put the radicchio on the top just before bake and obviously put the pie in the fridge. Let me know, ADA

Apart from that it is beautiful arrangement of radicchio on the cake… I think I would mannaiata and thrown to pieces in no particular order.
Then I also like very much the choice of using the ricotta (that makes me increase salivation that not even a blade…).
Beautiful recipe! Bravaaaaaaaaaa!!

But thanks!!! Actually when I fixed on the raw cake I was proud, then I cooked from view… Sometimes I understand why the photos of the magazines are fake… But the rustic pie was good. I had to sharpen our wits to use 3 pounds of radicchio! From Sicilian for me there is no other cottage cheese but to sheep, even if reluctantly I have to admit I have tasted a ricotta cheese from Puglia that got me a little’ moved… Thank you very much <3
