Recipe for Pangrattato with Lemon, Herbs, Cheese and Walnuts

Perfect for plain pasta dishes, I tend to use sourdough bread for this pangrattato version.



  • 3 slices stale bread torn into pieces
  • 50 g finely grated Romano cheese
  • 50 g walnuts finely chopped
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove of garlic very finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 handful of flat leaf parsley finely chopped
  • 1 handful of rocket finely chopped


How to make lemon pangrattato

  • Put the bread, Romano cheese, walnuts, lemon zest, lemon juice and garlic into a food processor and blitz to prepare the breadcrumb mix.
  • Heat the butter in a frying pan over medium heat then add the breadcrumb mix and fry until golden and crisp.
  • Transfer to a bowl. Add the parsley and rocket once cooled.
