Some macaroni omelettes are prepared in order to use leftover pasta, other omelettes are prepared just to enjoy them.
This omelette has been prepared to use very good potatoes from Sila which I boiled the day before. I also used 180 grams of macaroni produced by Benedetto Cavalieri which I had in my larder.
Ingredients for 2 people
180 g macaroni
2 potatoes, boiled
100 g smoked provola cheese, cut into small cubes
extra virgin olive oil to taste
1 slice of onion
2 spoonfuls of grated Parmesan cheese
2 spoonfuls of pecorino cheese from Crotone
salt, pepper and breadcrumbs to taste
Bring the water to a boil. In the meantime brown the finely cut onion slightly in the oil. Add the mashed potatoes and a few spoonfuls of hot water to keep them creamy. Add a pinch of salt and leave it to gain flavour on a medium-low flame for a few minutes.
Cook the macaroni slightly underdone and in the meantime beat two eggs in a capacious bowl with the Parmesan and pecorino cheese.
Strain the pasta and season it with the potatoes and the pieces of smoked provola cheese.
Pour the mixture into the bowl with the eggs and the cheese, mix and let it rest while the oil is getting hot.
Add the pasta and turn the omelette upside down.
If you want the surface to be crisp put breadcrumbs on the bottom of the pan.
Wine pairing: Barbetta wine produced by Nicola Venditti
