Preparation

  • Blend the fresh peas along with their green parts (leaves and pods) until you obtain a purée.
  • Flatten the tosone cheese by placing a thick slice between two sheets of waxed paper and rolling it with a rolling pin, like you would with a pie crust.
  • Add the pea purée to the cooked rice and then mix it all together with butter and Parmigiano.
  • Cut the flattened tosone into thin slices and place them at the bottom of the plate, so the cheese will melt when mixed with the rice and vegetables.
  • To the rice and pea mixture, add all the garden vegetables that you’ve sautéed in the pan until they’re a bit crunchy and golden.
