Gnocchi is a typical dish in the tradition of Italian cooking that in different regions may differ in the shape and size of the dough. De Cecco offers you a tasty product originating from the classic recipe that combines selected potatoes and wheat flour. The difference is they only take 2 minutes to cook. Their various shapes are designed to make them the perfect choice for preparing attractive dishes every day; from recipes with meat sauce or pesto alla genovese, to more original and imaginative ones based on velvety cheese sauces or simpler ones with melted butter, sage and grated parmesan. The 500g line consists of Gnocchi di patate, Chicche and Tronchetti.
This rice is one of the most widely used in Italy thanks to its characteristics of shape and substance. The grains are pleasantly large and visually appealing. This rice is particularly suited for both creamy risottos and "timballi" (oven-baked dishes) and "supplì" (rice croquettes).
When preparing a risotto, after removing the onion, let the the oil and butter reduce, add the rice and stir with a wooden spoon, so the rice does not come into contact with cold or sharp surfaces. Only when the rice has been toasted to perfection, i.e. it has absorbed all the condiment and has become shiny and transparent, can the other ingredients, called for in the recipe, be added.
Vacuum-packing prevents the rice from changing and preserves the colour, flavour and nutritional values of the grain.
