Italian style food is all about simple, good quality ingredients, so beans and pulses are the perfect base for many Italian inspired dishes.
Pulses have long been a staple part of the Italian diet and ours are carefully selected then rigorously checked to ensure that only the best of the crop are chosen. This attention to detail means that every soup, casserole or sauce you prepare with our pulses will be bursting with wholesome flavour.

Panelle di ceci alla siciliana in salsa di pomodoro (Sicilian chick pea fritters with tomato salsa)
Coarsely crush 2 x 400g tins of chick peas in a large bowl using a potato masher. Stir in 1 de-seeded and finely chopped red chilli, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 2 thinly sliced spring onions, 50g of parmesan cheese, 1 beaten egg and 1 tbsp of plain flour, mix well. Divide the mixture into 15 balls and gently press to form little patties. Gently heat 4 tbsp of Napolina light in colour olive oil in a frying pan and gently cook the fritters in small batches for 2-3 minutes on both sides, keep warm until all the fritters are cooked. Serve with a simple tomato salsa made by mixing chopped tomatoes, chilli, finely chopped shallots, garlic and basil.
