Recipe provided by Chef Mauro Mafrici at PELAGO Ristorante.


  • 7 lbs. Barilla® Campanelle
  • 7 oz. julienned sun-dried tomatoes
  • 9 oz. blanched, skinned fava beans
  • 7 oz. diced prosciutto
  • 4 sprigs chopped fresh marjoram
  • 7 oz. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 10 oz. unsalted butter
  • As needed salt
  • As needed pepper
  • 24 baby cleaned and top sliced off bell peppers
  • 2 lb. fresh bread crumbs
  • 7 oz. drained capers
  • 4 oz. black olive paste
  • 4 tsp. fresh oregano
  • 10 oz. grated Pecorino Toscano cheese
  • 2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
  • As needed salt
  • As needed pepper


Step 1

Cook the Barilla® pasta for half the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking. Place pasta flat on sheet trays or hotel pans and cool in a blast chiller. Alternatively, cool it down in a walk-in cooler. Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.

Step 2

To make the pepper stuffing: Mix together the bread crumbs, olive paste, capers, pecorino, and oregano. Add olive oil to moisten. Stuff about 1/2 cup into each baby pepper. Pan-fry or grill the peppers to order until tender and warm through.

Step 3

For each serving of pasta, to order: Heat 1 1/2 Tbsp. oil and saute about 1 oz. prosciutto, 1 oz. tomatoes, and a pinch of marjoram until prosciutto is crisp.

Step 4

Add 2 to 3 Tbsp. stock, bring to a boil, and add 1 1/2 oz. fava beans and 1 Tbsp. butter. Heat to emulsify the sauce and season with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Reheat 2 cups pasta in boiling salted water for 40 to 60 seconds. Drain and add to the sauce. Toss well.

Step 6

Plate and garnish with additional Parmesan and marjoram. Serve with or without a stuffed pepper.
