I had never come across this Pastieri dish until I met Joannie. Having looked on the internet, I can safely say this is quite a unique dish, similar to the sweet baked Jewish pudding Kugel, containing pasta, eggs, and raisins.You may have seen something similar called 'Sweet Noodle Kugel'. Well, this is Joannie's family twist on the recipe!

I am Joannie Siana, 90 years young.I was born in Pennsylvania, where I learned a bit of Dutch cooking and was married at 20. A few years later my husband and I moved to New Hampshire where we started a family. I have 2 sons and a daughter. I was widowed at age 60 after moving to California, and I enjoy cooking for friends and family.

    1. I’m sure you will like it as much as the Yorkshire Pudding! Let us know how it turns out, and pop over and say hello on Facebook,we’ve missed you all week, so hope you & hubby are looking after yourselves :)

    1. Hi Nina, no, this isn’t a Dutch recipe. Joannie has Italian roots, and says this recipe was made when she was a child by her mother, and I believe her grandmother also. We aren’t entirely sure how far back the recipe goes, but I would have a good guess at quite a few generations!

    1. I will pass on your thanks Andrea as she isn’t on the internet, but I will get her neighbour who we’ve done this through to give her your message. I am sure she will be tickled pink!

    2. I have printed this page and will carry to Joannie this morning–I know she will be tickled to death to see her recipe and the kind words from you here…she is a great old lady!!
