Cjalzons - Friulian Pasta Filled With Savory Sweet Stuffing

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 5 mins

This is a very traditional Northern Italian dish, and its preparation varies from village to village. It is usually served as "primo piatto", a starter. It combines a very interesting mix of sweet and savoury flavours and is usually served sprinkled with smoked ricotta cheese and drizzled with melted, browned butter. Enjoy, if possible, with red or white wines from the "collio" in Friuli.
