Sarah’s 5 favourite dishes in Sardinia


Spaghetti allo Scoglio by anapeps.

Zuppa Cuata – a Sardinian version of lasagne with bread soaked in mutton stock, layered with lots of cheese and baked in the oven.

Spaghetti allo Scoglio – pasta with a delicious mixed shell-food sauce including prawns, crayfish, mussels, octopus, clams and much more. 

Puligioni – ravioli filled with cheese and spinach and served either in melted butter infused with sage or in a tomato sauce.  In Gallura, the most northerly region of Sardinia, it is traditional to put a tiny amount of sugar in the pasta dough  making them slightly sweet. 

Porcetto – crispy roast sucking pig – the islands most traditional second course. 

Seadas – large raviolo-type pastry filled with cheese then fried and eaten hot with melted honey.
