#CookingwithStefania is the new cookbook 2.0 by Rustichella d’Abruzzo made of quick and simple video recipes for kids and adults. The “Executive Chef” is the Rustichella Owner Maria Stefania Peduzzi, mother of three, travel enthusiast and practical dreamer. Her managerial role dose not overshadow the love for children because – I am a proud teacher – as she likes to point out. So, she gives life to the “Bludreams” Onlus (whose mission is the one to follow children from 0 up to 14 years old, offering to them a creative didactical path in which the family has a decisive role) with the goal to transfer harmony to children and their families. In 2001 she opened the ZEROTRE nursery, originally created to accommodate the childrem from 0 up to 3 years old of her employees; this service was later extended to all working mothers. In 2003 the kindergartend L’isola che c’è school was established, and in 2007 she founded the Orizzonti Primary School. «We propose ourselves as a bridge between children and their families – Maria Stefania Peduzzi said – and in our activities we try to teach, like we were a window to look the world. Didactically, we invite children to satisfay their knowledge thirst, motivating them to continual discoveries.»
Rustichella d’Abruzzo dedicates its experience to children nutrition with the ZEROTRE line of pasta 100% organic. This line of products is born with the idea to promote to children, which are growing, the principles of the Mediterranean diet. Since infancy is good to propose to children a healthy diet and we know well how important is the durum wheat in the creation of a high quality pasta. This is why we choose, with great care, the best durum wheat semolina organically grown for our kids, with an higher protein count. Today we present you the Ciufoletti mixed berries, the perfect shape for 18 months and over, made with 100% organic durum wheat semolina from Abruzzo and 35% of organic mixed berries fresh puree (Blueberry 12%, Currant 11,5% and Raspberry 11,5%), a healthy and balanced food that we propose in this recipe with zucchini and corn.
Ingredients for 1 kid:
100 g of Corn (steaming)
Rustichella d’Abruzzo Extra Virgin Olive Oil as required
White onion (half)
500 ml of Vegetable Broth: carrots, zucchini, chard, potato, onion, spinach, 1 cherry tomatos (we suggest to add a little bit of Grana Padano crust to give much flavor)
Cooking time: 20 minutes – Difficulty Level: easy
Boil the water in a pot and add a little bit of salt. Separately, add a tablespoon of Rustichella Evo Oil in a pan with two slices of white onion and zucchini into rounds.
Warm gently (no sautéed) and add one ladleful of vegetables broth. A medium flame should get the broth boiling in about ten minutes.
Cook Ciufoletti for 3-4 minutes following the cooking time on the package, drain the pasta and put it directly in the pan with all the ingredients. Add Grana Padano cheese (or Parmigiano Reggiano) to obtain a cream, and the corn.
Mix well with a wooden spoon, add a drizzle of Rustichella evo oil, put the pasta in a colorful porcelain plate and serve.
