Pasta with Pecorino and Salami

Published by at 12:59 pm under Cooking at Home

Although we got married at the end of May, we decided not to go on our honeymoon until early October. We’ll be visiting France and Italy for 2 weeks, and since we won’t be there for another 3 months, we thought it would be nice to bring Italy to us. We made Pasta with Pecorino and Salami, which is a popular dish from Sicily. Pecorino is basically the name of the family of hard Italian cheeses made from sheep milk, such as Romano or Parmigiano Reggiano. And luckily for us, our friend in New York sent us 3.5 lbs of hard salami from Katz Delicatessen (along with that pastrami!). It was nice to have an Italian dinner right in our home, but we are totally looking forward to the real Italian dinner in Italy.

We cut the salami up into small cubes, as shown. We had so much salami leftover that I used it to make pasta salad and also gave some to friends to snack on!

In a large skillet, add chopped onion, garlic, red pepper flakes and saute until tender, then add the salami. Next, pour in white wine and chicken stock and reduce the liquid by half.

Add chicken stock, heavy cream, and some pepper. Bring the sauce to a boil and then simmer until thickened to a sauce consistency. Stir in the grated Pecorino into the sauce and cook until just melted.

Add the cooked pasta into the sauce and mix together until pasta is well coated.

It's nice to have an Italian meal without it being the usual spaghetti and meatballs or lasagna. Try something different and you'll discover how great it can be. One more thing - don't forget to enjoy this meal with a nice glass of wine!

    This looks absolutely amazing! I love pasta with cream sauces (although I don’t indulge too often). Having come up with this before your trip to Italy, I’m curious to see what you’ll make once you’ve been inspired by your travels!

    Cream sauces are so tasty, but absolutely fattening! We will definitely bring back a lot of inspiration from Italy and France to whip up some more great dishes!

    Love this recipe! Growing up the only salami I knew was cotto salami with the peppercorns. It wasn’t until I married my Italian husband that I FINALLY tasted good salami – wow!

    And anything with cheese I am in! :D

    Our motto is: the more garlic, the merrier! We love the taste of garlic and we don’t mind the stinky breaths, lol!
