  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 cup semolina or pasta flour
  • 1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, freshly grated
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream (optional)


  1. Cook milk in a heavy nonaluminum saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, 6 minutes or just until bubbles appear (do not boil). Stir in semolina. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes or just until semolina begins to set. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese and salt and pepper to taste. If desired, whisk in up to 1/3 cup cream for desired consistency.

I suggest using Bob's Red Mill Semolina Flour.
