Pane Carasau with Rosemary

Pane Carasau, Rosemary, Olives, Pecorino - sprinkled with Olsson's Sea Salt Flakes

I love Sardinia’s crisp flatbread, called carta di musica or, in dialect, pane carasau, especially the way chef Giovanni Pilu serves it, sprinkled with olive oil, salt and rosemary and crisped in the oven. With a few olives, a chunk of Pecorino or homemade ricotta (see video below), and my favourite aperitivo I often forget about the rest of dinner!

Serves 2 as antipasti

Ingredients
  • 2 sheets pane carasau
  • Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • Salt flakes, to taste
  • 1 sprig rosemary, leaves picked
  • Olives, for serving
  • Pecorino Sardo, for serving
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Place pane carasau on a baking tray.
  3. Brush with oil.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and rosemary.
  5. Bake for 5-8 minutes, until well coloured.
  6. Break into pieces and serve with olives, Pecorino and your favourite aperitivo (you’ll find recipes for some of mine here).

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

The whole Be Inspired experience has helped me love cooking again. I was sick of cooking the same old things - meal time is a lot brighter thanks to you Roberta.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are Ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.

Loving Be Inspired! Felt like a kid opening up a Christmas present when the box arrived. Fresh herb pots are a nice touch!

Thanks so much for the Fresh & Easy Meal, it was excellent. We regularly get another meal kit delivery – your offering is vastly superior and a similar price, so big ticks.

I'm a competent cook whose learned so much from the Recipes+Videos Packs. The recipes are yummy and Roberta’s video guidance offers so many little tips to improve flavour and organise the flow of preparation. I enjoy her warmth, sense of humour, and ability to giggle at herself when she occasionally messes up.
