Nutritional values

Pecorino cheese is particularly rich in minerals, vitamins and special fatty acids such as linoleic acid. It helps to reduce the amount of fat in the body and build muscle mass.

Also very tasty if you use white instead of red cabbage! In any case, the rustic vegetables offer, apart from plenty of fibre, around 50 milligrams (per 100 grams) of vitamin C "full".
