KBB #28 - Torta Pasqualina (Easter Savoury Cake)

Tantangan ini bener-bener "tantangan" buat aku hihi. Belum pernah sama sekali denger savoury cake dari Itali dengan nama Torta Pasqualina :D Walaupun baru dengar, tapi semangat nggak boleh memble hehe. Baiklah, jadi aku membuat torta pasqualina ini 2 kali. Yang pertama hanya demo, yang kedua baru lebih serius.

Kesan pertama ku makanan ini mirip quiche yang suka dijual di toko2 pastry express. Oke, berikut sepak terjang ku membuat KBB 28 ini.

Untuk resep, aku pake resep dari surat cinta KBB seperti biasa. Berikut laporan ku:

Torta Pasqualina
Source: Old Time Cooking Recipes

600 g (1 lb 5 oz) white flour
6 Tbs olive oil
a pinch of salt

1 kg (2 lb) Swiss chard (silver beet) or spinach
400 g (0.9 lb) cottage cheese/ricotta cheese
100 g (3.5 oz) parmesan
10 eggs
2 teaspoons marjoram, chopped
2 teaspoons parsley, chopped
garlic, minced (optional)
olive oil
salt, pepper

-Combine flour, oil, a pinch of salt and enough cold water to make a
medium soft dough.
-Knead well for 10 minutes or until the dough becomes elastic.
-Divide the dough into 14 balls.
-Cover with cloth and let stand for about 1 hour.

-Clean, wash and dry the Swiss chard.
-Place in a saucepan with little boiling water and cook at high heat
until wilted.
-Cool, then squeeze out excess liquid and chop finely.
-Add 50 g (1.7 oz) parmesan cheese, marjoram, parsley, garlic and 2
eggs. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Oil a round shallow oven dish, 9 inches (22 cm) in diameter.

4. Flatten each piece of dough, one at a time, making each a very thin
disk, larger than the baking pan you are going to use.

5. Lay the pastry on the oven dish, allowing it to flow over the
edges. Oil it lightly.

6. Place another disk over it and repeat until you have used 7 disks.

7. Spread the Swiss chard stuffing over the dough, and then spread the
cottage cheese over the greens level with a knife.

8. Make 8 small cavities. Pour a raw egg into each cavity and sprinkle
each with salt, pepper and remaining parmesan cheese.

9. Cover the whole lot with the same number of pastry sheets, each
brushed with oil.

10. Pinch the borders and trim the excess dough, prick the top of the
pie in a few places and then brush with oil.

11. Bake for 1 hour in 190 C (375 F) oven. Allow to rest before
removing from the cake tin
