Ferrarese Cappellacci with pumpkin PGI

This pasta is the latest PGI addition, on January 2016, to the “basket” of protected and certified products from Emilia Romagna. The traditional recipe calls for dough prepared with a mix of soft and durum wheat flour and eggs and a filling of yellow “ribbed butternut” squash, with the addition of grated cheese, breadcrumbs, nutmeg and sugar.

It is produced throughout the province of Ferrara.
