Cinnamon Flavoured Sweet Strozzapreti

Strozzapreti dolci al profumo di cannella

This recipe is known (it is uncertain to what extent) in the Cesenate area. It clearly stems from the frugal cooking of peasants’ tradition. It blends the sweet flavour of sugar with the spicy taste of cinnamon. It is a tasty dish, very simple, easy-to-cook and cheap.

Difficulty: Medium

Ingredients: for the “strozzapreti” pasta: 300 g of breadcrumbs, 300 g of flour, milk to taste for blending. For the seasoning: 50 g of sugar, 1 tsp. of cinnamon, 2 tbsp. of breadcrumbs, extra-virgin olive oil to taste. Serves 6.

Preparation: Mix the flour and the breadcrumbs. Blend into the warm milk, until a soft mixture is obtained. Roll out the dough to obtain a 2 mm thick layer and cut it into 1-1,5 cm wide strips. Roll each strips with your hands lengthways (hands must rub each other in the direction palm-tip). In this way, shape the “strozzapreti” 5-6 cm long. Boil in hot salted water for 2 minutes, drain, then drop them in a tureen and sprinkle with the mixture of sugar-cinnamon-breadcrumbs, previously made. Season with raw oil.
