A favorite recipe from my Sardinian family! Taste it and enjoy la bella vita!

Fregola Stufada


For 4 Person(s)

For the Fregola:

  • 1 pound Sardinian semolina fregola
  • 1/3 cup grated Pecorino Sardo cheese
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 medium sized chopped onions
  • 1 sprig of fresh parsley
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt, to taste


  1. Cook the fregola in the meat broth for 10-15 minutes, and drain if necessary, setting the broth aside.
  2. In a pan, simmer the chopped onion in some olive oil, then add the chopped parsley.
  3. In a baking dish, spread a layer of the fregola, then a layer of the cooked onion and a sprinkle of Pecorino Sardo cheese. Repeat until all ingredients are used.
  4. Cook in a 375° oven for 20 minutes. The fregola is ready when it is dry enough to be eaten with a fork.
