Every region in Italy has some sort of stuffed pasta on the “menu”, Sardinia has a different one: is Culurgiones  filling with potatoes, pecorino and mint…they are delightful!

Steps

1
Done

Culurgiones dough

Pour semolina and flour in a stand mixer equipped with the dough hook. Add olive oil and warm water. Work the dough until well combined. Pour the dough onto a wood bench and start to knead the dough for some minutes until the consistency is smooth and elastic. Wrap the dough in clingfilm and leave it to rest for at least 30 minutes.

Culurgiones dough

Place potatoes in a medium saucepan and add cold water to cover all. Bring to boil , season with salt and cook until fork-tender, around 25 minutes. Tranfer potatoes to a plate and leave to cool. After peel the potatoes and mash them with a masher. I recommend to prepare the potatoes the day before so they are perfectly dry and cold for the filling.
Mix mashed potatoes with the sardinian pecorino and previously crushed mint. Add olive oil flavored with garlic in a pan and let it cool. Add, if you like some pepper. The filling is ready!

Making Culurgiones

Roll the pasta dough out thinly, by hand or with a machine, to 1 mm thickness. Cut out circles 8 cm in diameter. Place the filling off centre. Put the circle in your no- working hand, towards the bottom of your hand. With your thumb, pinch a fold of dough over from the bottom to cover the filling, and then fold over alternately from left and right to give a pleated effect. Pinch in at the centre as you go, to seal the culurgiones, and seal the top with a final pinch. The end product looks like an ear of wheat.

Sauce

Heat the oil in a large saucepan, and fry the garlic until soft. Add tomatoes and basil. Cook for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the culurgiones in plenty of boiling salted water for 5 minutes or until al dente. Drain, serve with the sauce and fresh basil.
