1
For the passatelli pasta, mix together the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, eggs, lemon oil and zest in a large bowl. Bring together by hand then knead on a clean work surface to form a smooth, elastic dough. Wrap in cling film and place in the fridge for 30 minutes
  • 200g of breadcrumbs
  • 200g of Parmesan
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 drops of lemon oil
  • 1 lemon, zested

Meanwhile, start on the rest of the pie. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil, blanch the chard leaves for 1 minute then drain and refresh briefly in iced water and pat dry. Set aside
  • chard, 12 leaves
3
Next blanch the broad beans in the boiling water for 2–3 minutes. Refresh in iced water then remove the outer skins by gently squeezing out the soft inner bean
  • 150g of broad beans, podded
4
Place a frying pan over a low heat, drizzle in the olive oil and add the garlic and thyme. Stir in the broad beans to warm through for a few minutes then season with salt and pepper. Remove and discard the whole sprig of thyme and take the pan off the heat. Set aside a few broad beans for garnish
  • 25ml of olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • salt
  • pepper
5
Pour the chicken stock into a large pan and bring to the boil over a high heat. Push the passatelli pasta dough through a potato ricer into the stock to create long strands and cook for 2–3 minutes
  • 1l chicken stock
6
Drain the pasta and tip into the pan with the broad beans. Add the grated pecorino and mix everything together
  • 75g of pecorino, grated
7
Line 6 dariole moulds with the softened chard leaves, overlapping 2 leaves per mould with an overhang around the edge. Divide the pasta between the moulds and fold the overhanging leaves over the top to create sealed parcels
8
Prepare the cheese sauce by heating the milk in a small pan over a low heat and stirring in the pecorino until melted. Remove the pan from the heat and blend with a hand blender until smooth and creamy
  • 150g of milk
  • 25g of pecorino, grated
9
Divide the sauce equally between serving bowls and unmould a pie into the centre of each. Garnish with the reserved broad beans, a drizzle of olive oil, an extra sprinkling of grated pecorino and grinding of black pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 handful of pecorino, grated
  • freshly ground black pepper
