One of the most memorable things about our experience in Norcia was, of course, the food. While there, we savored the best sausage ever! Frederico, our amazing host, revealed the only ingredients in his sausage were pork, salt, and pepper. Yes, the pork is just that good!
Another gastronomic speciality of Norcia is their Castelluccio lentils. They’re very small, super flavorful, and one of the most sought after foods in Umbria.
The Bianconi family was kind enough to share some of their recipes so we can continue making their amazing Italian recipes at home. We’ve made the lentils and sausage below several times. It’s simple, but delicious. At first, we were a little apprehensive of boiling sausage, but trust us, it’s so good!
