Paccheri with radicchio


And one that keeps you svelte! This is the perfect dish to stay fit while enjoying great flavours and simple ingredients, rich in vitamins and minerals. Radicchio is a great food for those who are counting calories as it has a very low energy content and a high percentage of water; it is considered a purifying vegetable and is recommended for those suffering from poor digestion and constipation. Moreover, it is rich in minerals such as potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, zinc, sodium, iron, copper, and manganese as well as in vitamins (B, C, E, and K).

And sainfoin honey? 

It too features beneficial properties; tasty and natural, it is an excellent substitute for sugar. We recommend adding a teaspoon to the paccheri for an unusual flavour, but you can also leave it out if you so prefer.

NGREDIENTS for 2 servings:



  1. Heat a non-stick pan with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and the onion, finely chopped. Then add the previously washed and chopped radicchio and the sainfoin honey. Brown for a few seconds over high heat, add 2/3 tablespoons of water, and cook over medium heat until cooked. Turn off the heat, add the chopped walnuts and a pinch of coarse salt. We recommend not letting all the water contained in the radicchio evaporate completely.
  2. On the side, bring a pot of salted water to a boil, pour the Paccheri in it, and cook for the time shown on the package (in this case 10 minutes).
  3. Once ready, drain and add them to the pan together with the sauce, turn on at high heat, add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, the Grana Padano cheese flakes and, if necessary, a little cooking water from the Paccheri. Sautee everything for a few seconds
  4. Serve the sweet and sour Paccheri hot.
