Bianca’s small pots.

DI Chiara Maci | 25 Mar 2019


At every Bianca’s birthday, my father gives her a personalized small pot, with name and date.

So when she grows up, she will already have her cooking set.

Meanwhile, I use them J

Small pots with sautéed broccoli, smoked provola and béchamel.



2 broccoli

about 70g of smoked provola

1 onion


Chili pepper or pepper

Extra virgin olive oil

For the béchamel:

500ml of whole milk

50g of butter

25g of flour



– Wash broccoli carefully, cut the florets and peel the stem.

– Cook in boiling water, lightly salted, for about ten minutes.

– Meanwhile prepare the béchamel by melting the butter in a saucepan, then adding the sifted flour and the milk gradually. Season with plenty of nutmeg and a pinch of salt. Continue stirring until you get a thick sauce.

– Drain broccoli and sauté them in a pan with the chopped onion, lightly fried. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.

– Divide them into small pots (for oven) or place them on a baking tray.

– Cube the smoked provola and add it together with a generous spoon of béchamel and a grating of black pepper.

– Bake the pots in preheated oven at 180c for about 15/20 minutes, until the surface is golden brown.

– Remove them from the oven and serve hot.
