Timpana/Timpano/Timballo (still don’t know it’s name) is everything that is good in this world in a pasta “pie” crust. Originating from Sicily and Malta, this recipe can feed an army. It takes a long time to make, but everything is made from scratch and it is all worth it when it’s time to eat. Pasta, sauce, hard boiled eggs, meatballs, sausage, cheese, all comes together in a layered marvel.
Dr. GP and @ameyris worked together to make everything for this dish. They used @bingingwithbabish recipe that Babish recreated from the movie “Big Night”. Check out his Youtube channel!
Paired with the Timpana is a 2016 Barone Fini Pinot Grigio and 2013 @90pluscellars Chianti Riserva. Normally, I do not like Italian Pinot Grigio. To me, it is too light and lacking flavor. Not this one. Barone Fini's Pinot Grigio is full of floral and stone fruit flavors with nice minerality. On top of that, it's only $11. Quite a fantastic wine for the price! The Chianti Riserva, only $12, is also a steal. Full of Cherries, Potpourri, and vanilla, this Chianti has a slight bite, but smooth finish.
