I Culurgiones

Culurgiones are a kind of fresh pasta ravioli shaped like an ear (spighitta) and made by hand, typical of the Ogliastra area and later the whole of Sardinia. When making this type of filled pasta, the greatest difficulty lies in closing the pucks of pastry to give them their characteristic appearance.

The dough is made of durum wheat semolina and the filling consists of boiled and ground potatoes, fresh, seasoned or semi-matured Sardinian pecorino cheese, garlic, extra virgin olive oil and mint leaves.

Culurgiones are cooked in salted water for a few minutes and the most traditional condiments used are tomato sauce and plenty of grated pecorino cheese or simply butter and sage. più tradizionali utilizzati sono, il sugo di pomodoro e abbondante pecorino grattugiato o semplicemente con burro e salvia.
