Posted on 01 October 2014

Cavatelli with Chives and Olive Oil is a light and simple pasta dish. Although it is made with just a few ingredients, the blend of the Migliarese Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sharp Pecorino Romano cheese creates a rich and satisfying taste. Complement this pasta dish with a simple tomato salad and plenty of bread to dip with any extra olive oil and cheese! Enjoy with the flowery and crisp taste of Corte del Sole Soave, and you have a perfectly paired dish to help you unwind after a busy day!



1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

2. While the water boils, chop the chives and mix with the olive oil in a small bowl. Add salt and pepper to the sauce to your taste and stir to combine.

3. When the water boils, add a sprinkle of salt. Then add the pasta to the boiling water. Cook for 12 minutes.

4. While the pasta is cooking, chop the parsley for garnish.

5. Drain the pasta, but do not rinse. Spoon pasta, about 1/3 at a time into the oil and chive sauce and stir. Continue to add pasta and stir until mixed.

6. Spoon the pasta onto individual plates. Sprinkle with Pecorino Romano Cheese and garnish with chopped parsley. Serve with warm bread and olive oil seasoned with chopped spices and fresh ground black pepper and a glass of Corte del Sole Soave. Buon Appetito!

  • Corte del Sole’s Soave | Pasta and Vino: July 07, 2015

    […] Corte del Sole’s Soave is a DOC Classico produced in a small town with the same name within the Veneto region a few kilometers east of Verona. The Soave is made from 100% Garganega grapes. Records prove that the vine has grown in the region since ancient times and continues to be one of the most important vines for Soave today. Grapes are hand-picked during the last 10 days of September and the first 10 days of October. The grapes are then crushed and complete a cold maceration for more than 12 hours depending on ripeness. Maceration is followed by a soft pressing and fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature between 64 degrees and 68 degrees Fahrenheit with native yeasts. The Soave is yellow with golden and greenish hues. It has a floral bouquet laced with scents of exotic fruits and nuts, including almonds, hazelnuts and mineral aromas. This wine is full, balanced and harmonious on the palate with flavors of the land and a long finish. The characteristics of Soave have gained notoriety as being a close cousin to Pinot Grigio. Corte del Sole’s Soave is best served with appetizers, fish, shellfish and white meats. It makes an excellent aperitif and should be served between 50 degrees and 54 degrees Fahrenheit. Try pairing it with our Cavatelli with Chives and Olive Oil recipe! […]
