Olive Garden’s Stuffed Ziti Fritta
Olive Garden’s Stuffed Ziti Fritta appetizer should not be missed! Packed full of cheese such as ricotta, mozzarella, cream cheese, parmesan and Romano it’s served piping hot on cooked rigatoni pasta tubes before breaded and fried to perfection before being served alongside either marinara or Alfredo sauce for dipping!
Olive Garden’s Stuffed Ziti Fritta recipe can easily be replicated at home. First step should be cooking al dente rigatoni pasta while softening cheese mixture for easier mixing. Furthermore, extra pasta should be cooked just in case some pieces rip or break during stuffing process. Incorporating flour-coating before egg-dipping with breadcrumbs saves both time and ensures even coating.
To create the cheese filling, combine ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a large bowl, mixing until evenly distributed. You may wish to add in mascarpone or cottage cheese for smoother texture if desired; parsley can also be added for an aromatic garnish; the prepared mixture should then be transferred into a ziplock bag and refrigerated before assembly fritta style: cut one corner off of it so as to act as makeshift piping bag and pipe into each rigatoni pasta tube before rolling each tube in breading mix and deep fry until golden brown in color
Once your fritta are done frying, they should be dunked in marinara or Alfredo sauce for an enjoyable meal. Although best enjoyed fresh from the fryer, any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to three days; when ready to enjoy again simply reheat in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes before eating again.
Stuffed Ziti Fritta are an easy and delicious appetizer perfect for Italian family dinners or parties, easy to make with their unique combination of sweet and savory flavors. Since they are extremely filling, however, it may be worthwhile serving it alongside something lighter such as a refreshing chicken salad that will help offset their richness while using up leftover chicken!
