Welcome back Italian food lovers!!! Today, we are preparing you for the upcoming holidays by suggesting a dish that brings people together through the combination of flavors and an element of surprise, let’s make “timballo di maccheroni”!
Although this dish differs from one region to another, in appearance it looks the same. A dish of succulent pasta or rice, and other ingredients, hidden under a delicious crust. The term timballo, in fact, has Arabic origins, and was initially used to refer to an ancient musical instrument similar to the drum. Because of its shape, the term was then adopted in the kitchen to refer to a cylindrical baking pan in which dishes can be molded to have that shape.
The origins of this dish date back to the 14th century and belongs to the Neapolitan gastronomic tradition. Pasta brisée (shortcrust pastry), which is used for the crust of the timballo, has French origins and it is a crumbly and crunchy pastry made with flour, butter and water, used in the preparation of sweets and savory pies.
