When my better half and I were in Italy recently he ate a dish called Pizzoccheri on a number of occasions. That dish originates from Valtellina in Lombary and includes buckwheat tagliatelle, potatoes, savoy cabbage and Taleggio or Fontina Cheese. I have not yet managed to find a local source of the pasta and though it can be ordered online I am sure the dried version is not the same. This is Nigella Lawson’s Anglo version from her book ” Nigellissima”.
