For my Recipe of the Month, I have chosen Strucolo de Spinaze (Spinach-Filled Pasta Roll). Strucolo means “strudel” in the Triestine dialect, though restaurants may also refer to the dish as a “rotolo” or “rollata.” It is quite common throughout the Carso, often served with the pan sauces from a roasted or braised meat. Visit Flavors-of-Friuli.com for the recipe.

cjalsons di Treppo CarnicoFor my Recipe-of-the-Month, I have chosen Cjalsòns di Treppo Carnico (Pasta Filled with Potatoes and Raisins). One of my favorite recipes for cjalsòns, these are sweetened with caramelized onions, raisins, and a touch of sugar. I first tasted them over a decade ago at Ristorante Alle Vecchie Carceri in San Daniele, although its chef, Ugo Durigon, has since moved to Udine, where he and his wife have opened Osteria Antica Maddalena. For my recipe, visit Flavors-of-Friuli.com.

cjalsons di piedimFor my Recipe-of-the-Month, I have chosen Cjalsòns di Piedim (Pasta Filled with Chocolate and Nuts), one of my favorite Friulian specialties. Throughout the mountains of Carnia, each cook prepares his or her own unique version of cjalsòns (also spelled cjalcions and cjarzòns), merging herbs and spices and creating a distinct shape and form for the dough. This recipe, inspired by the cjalsòns from the village of Piedim, are decadent enough to serve as a special Valentine’s Day meal. For my recipe, visit Flavors-of-Friuli.com.
