Tantangan KBB #28 (Maret – April 2012) - Torta Pasqualina (Easter Savoury Cake)
Torta Pasqualina literally means 'Easter cake' in Italian. It's atypical Easter dish from Piemonte and Liguria. The dough is a layered dough, a bit like 'fillo dough', but thicker.It's called 'pasta matta' (i.e. crazy dough) As this dish comes from Liguria it contains a local cheese called Prescinseua which can onlybe found in Liguria. It is very creamy, soft and slightly acidulated.It’s unlikely you will find Prescinseau so a very soft ricotta can ora regular ricotta with the addition of a little milk will do.
I´m not quite satisfied with the result :( my dough isn´t thin enough. I use one recipe for the dough and 1/2 recipe for filling, that´s why...my dough is too hard !!
