5 capicollo recipe ideas to try at home

October 16, 2019

Capicolli or capicollo is an Italian specialty that is currently in vogue in kitchens. This variety of charcuterie is obtained from a whole muscle of marinated pork shoulder in a mixture of spices, which is then cooked slowly in the traditional way. With this ingredient, we can prepare different recipes adapted to all budgets and all occasions. To spice up your meals and give you new ideas, here are 5 capicollo recipes to try at home!

1.  Pasta with vodka sauce

One of the best ways to savor capicollo is to mix it with pasta. But this time, Aliments Roma offers a rather special capicollo recipe, with a vodka sauce.

For preparing the sauce;

  • Start by cooking onion and garlic,
  • Add the vodka and bring everything to a boil.
  • For a better taste, add red pepper and tomato and cook until you have a thick sauce.
  • Put the pasta on the plates, pour the sauce and enjoy!

Note it’s possible to replace the vodka with a rosé sauce to adapt the recipe to children.

2.  Capicollo rolled Omelet

  • Eggs,
  • Capicollo,
  • Swiss cheese,

  • Some chives.

Then, to make your capicollo omelet recipe, just beat the eggs and add the other ingredients, not forgetting salt and pepper. Then pour the mixture into a dish and bake for 15 minutes. When it is cooked, it only remains to roll the omelette and cut into thin slices.
