This was a dish that my friend, Judy, prepared for me after her latest trip to Italy. We then "googled" it so that we could use the correct amounts for the ingredients. Posted in May 23, 2007 newsletter of italianfoodforever.com. "Fregola is an ancient form of pasta made from semolina, a staple of the Sardinian kitchen since it was imported from North Africa. This recipe is prepared in the same manner you would use to make risotto." A creamy, delicious dish. You can buy Fregola di Sarda can be purchased at Cybercucina.
