We have begun creating building blocks for American Noodles. One of the first is salumi soffritos. Our first is creation was pepperoni-centric. No surprise there. We minced equal parts onion and pepperoni in the food processor. We slowly cooked it down in a pan coated with olive oil. We gently cooked the mixture for about 30 minutes until the onions were tender and the pepperoni was lightly caramelized. Then we cooled it down and reserved the pepperoni soffrito for enriching sauces a la minute.
