SPONSORED in partnership with DeLallo Foods
Last but not least of this trio of DeLallo Foods past salads is this riff on Cacio E Pepe. We Used DeLallo's Organic Whole-Wheat Acini di Pepe, peas, sweet & tangy pepper drops, black pepper sausage and a creamy buttermilk and black pepper dressing.
Yield: Serves or Makes 6-8
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to package directions, and add peas during the last 3 minutes of cooking time. Drain, then toss with 1 tbsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, whisk together the buttermilk, black pepper, garlic, parmesan cheese and olive oil.
When pasta has cooled slightly, toss with the buttermilk dressing, then stir in the pepper drops, sausage and fresh parsley. Season to taste, then let chill at least 1 hour before serving. Add more freshly grated parmesan cheese on top when serving.
