Do you know how to prepare a delicious savoury pie with red onion and Sicilian local caciocavallo cheese?
Some years ago a lady taught me some very fast but tasty recipes to do when you feel tired or just don’t have any clue what to cook. She was a working mum with 3 kids, so she always struggled with time.
One of the recipes I loved the most is definitely this lovely scrumptious pie for those who appreciate the delicate taste of red onion mixed with the salty and strong taste of our local caciocavallo cheese. Since I learnt how to make it, I have prepared it so many times and everyone in my family loves it.
It is also the perfect recipe for vegetarians!
You need to use some shortcrust pastry as a base, so you can either make it yourself as I do, or buy it ready in supermarkets as she was suggesting. (working mum & time issue remember?)
Ingredients & preparation for 4 people:
– shortcrust pastry
– 3-4 medium red onions
– 80 gr matured caciocavallo cheese
– extra virgin olive oil
– salt & pepper
– 2 ts fresh creamy cheese (like Philadelphia or Robiola)
You will definitely love the contrast between the sweetness and delicacy of the red onion and the strong taste of the Sicilian caciocavallo all blended together in one delicious pie. Enjoy!
