Traditional ingredients, a traditional recipe: túrós csusza.
Ingredients for about 4 servings
300 g pasta squares
500 g curd cheese
20 ml sour cream
Oil (instead of fat from the bacon)
: 40 minutes
Dice the bacon, fry them, and drain on a paper towel.
Cook the pasta in a generous amount of salted water. When cooked, rinse with warm water. Add a drop of lard or a splash of oil to keep the pasta from sticking.
Mix 3/4-th of the curd cheese and 10 ml sour cream, salt to taste, and then mix with the pasta. Serve the hot pasta with the crumbled curd cheese, sour cream and the fried bacon cubes - separately in small bowls, so that everyone can fix their own pasta to taste.
- Use pappardelle, cut into squares, or knead a firm dough from 300 g plain flour and 2 eggs, rolled out thinly. When it is almost dry, cut into squares.
