On the Menu: Cavatelli alla Nerano

Cavatelli alla Nerano is a great vegetarian, spring dish. To make Nerano sauce you’ll need zucchini and “Provolone del Monaco” cheese. Why do we call it like this? In the past, farmers from the countryside reached Naples to sell their savory cheese. Being poor they were just dressed in heavy capes, so they were commonly called “Monks”. That’s why this wonderful cheese is known as “Provolone del Monaco”, Monk’s cheese.
