Neapolitan Rustic Quick and easy recipe

Neapolitan rustic: one of the best things that the Neapolitan rotisserie offers. It pleases all lovers of both sweet and savory in fact the rustic is composed of a sweet pastry that wraps a salty filling made of ricotta, pepper, salami and provolone. You recognize the rustics by their oval shape, they are similar to the sfogliatelle (shortbread). Today I propose the very simple and successful recipe. You can use the oval molds (as I did) or prepare a larger single rustic, if instead you create a rectangular shape it is perfect for buffets by cutting it into slices.

Ingredients for 6 small oval rustics

  • 2 rolls of sweet shortcrust pastry
  • 700 gr of ricotta
  • 7-8 slices of Napoli salami
  • Provoloncino di Sorrento (like caciocavallo)
  • 1 egg
  • pepper
  • butter and flour
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


How to make the Neapolitan Rustic

Cut the salami into slices and then into small pieces, also cut the provolone (I used the provoloncino di Sorrento, but the fior di latte of the day before is fine, or a provolone type caciocavallo). In a bowl, put the ricotta, Parmesan, salami and provoloncino cut into small pieces and turn everything, mixing the ingredients.
