We Make Andre Soltner's Alsatian Stew

We had such a blast with our last recipe post we wanted to bring you another. So here's an old Alsatian stew called baeckeoffe inspired by an André Soltner recipe. Soltner, a native of Alsace, came to New York in 1961 and ran the kitchen at Lutèce for 34 years. The Midtown East beacon of nouvelle cuisine closed its doors in 2004, but the recipe lives on.

We Make Lidia Bastianich's Malloreddus al Ragu

Lidia Bastianich makes extraordinarily delectable pastas. A lot of her recipes are rooted in her Istrian heritage, but many come from other parts of Italy. Malloreddus with sausage ragu is an example of the latter. The dish comes from the island of Sardinia off the west coast of Italy. We made it the other day and had such luck we decided to make it again and take pictures along the way. Lidia's malloreddus recipe in this case calls for saffron, but the dish can easily be made without. If you didn't want to make the semolina-based pasta from scratch, you could sub in orecchiette or mezze rigatoni, but that wouldn't be nearly as fun.

Pictures are after the recipe. Buon appetito.

RAGU:

2 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 medium onion, diced

1 32oz can whole peeled tomoatoes

6 sweet Italian sausage links, removed from casing

1/2 cup white wine

basil

salt, pepper, chili flake to taste

Pecorino

PASTA:

1 cup semolina flour

1/2 cup (will vary) water
