Carasau Bread Pie
Carasau bread is a versatile ingredient used in Sardinian cuisine. Thanks to its crunchy texture and its thin sheets, it has become the main ingredient in a gourmet recipe: Carasau bread pie.
The combination of a tasty tomato sauce and goat cheese slices create this delicious first course, which is perfect for a special occasion.
It’s easy to cook, and with a hint of Sardinian flavours it can be served as an original reinterpretation of the more traditional pie.
To prepare carasau bread pie, start by finely chopping the garlic and browning it in a large pan.
Add the tomato puree and cook it over a low heat for 15 minutes, seasoning with salt and pepper.
Grease a baking pan with oil, pour in a ladle of sauce and then place the carasau bread sheets to form a homogeneous layer.
Cover the carasau bread with more puree and with goat cheese slices, and continue to alternate the layers until all the ingredients have been used up.
The last layer should be sauce. Sprinkle this with grated parmesan.
Now bake in the pre-heated oven at 180° for 25 minutes, then garnish with basil leaves and serve.
