Directions:

STEP 1

In a large saucepan, bring the milk to a gentle simmer. Rain in the semolina slowly, whisking all the while to prevent clumping. Reduce the heat to a simmer; add 2 tablespoons of the butter, 2 teaspoons salt, and a few grinds of pepper and let the semolina cook gently, stirring occasionally, until it’s thick and the semolina is cooked through, about 45 minutes.

STEP 2

Stir in the remaining butter and ¼ cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and continue to cook for an additional 10 minutes or so, stirring occasionally. Taste and season with salt and pepper, if needed.

STEP 3

To serve, spoon the semolina into a shallow bowl, top with ¼ cup ceci beans, shaved white Alba truffles from Urbani, and a generous portion of shaved or grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Serve immediately.

We love this recipe because it’s so simple and so comforting. Even the cooking process is relaxing. Make sure to give the semolina the full amount of time to cook, otherwise it will still be a little gritty! Serve it alongside duck breast or short rib. The Urbani white truffles and the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese give this hearty dish a rich and savory taste, which pairs wonderfully with a nice bottle of Barolo.
