Pizzoccheri is a typical dish from Valtellina, the alpine region where my grandparents are from. It is made with a special type of pasta made with buckwheat, the "pizzoccheri", shaped as a short tagliatelle, about 7-8cm long and a bit thicker, cooked together with potatoes and cabbage or chard leaves. It is simple to make and goes down like a storm!!
An easy recipe and simple to double or triple, depending on amount needed. Hope you enjoy!

I was eager to concoct a suitable meal for guests on my student budget by utilizing ingredients already in my apartment. With one vegetarian on our guest list, I aimed for veggie-friendly, economical yet still rich and satisfying. I served this with sun-dried tomato bread and not a morsel remained--very filling AND loaded with vitamins!
