Pastiera Recipe (Ricotta and Cooked Grains Cake)

(The Passover in Italy is about Mammon. I try to say that time to time on my FB page so I understand it sounds ridiculous here the way I’ve said it without more to say, but, so I try this so often, there is just no point. So as far as if you were going to use this cake in a Passover the farina would be okay. I understand that is not going to work in Israel — but then again, nobody I talk to believes that Roman Catholics (which I am not even anymore) are half-Jews according to my poorly told story. (No one will visit my page again. I take this risk all the time. I have nothing to elaborate really. It’s just the way it is; I know this. Italy is a dying nation. I always say that.)

Anyway, I read that Kamut is acceptable flour alternative? Is that right? I have heard that from Italian chefs before. They use something called Kamut when for any reason we might have it is without leaven. We have some Jewish standards we observe in Catholic service in Italy throughout the year — this is account of the biblical being biblical to all faith. I don’t believe in testamentary segregation myself, so by practice and origin and finally belief, I still seem to be half-and-half. Fine, maybe someday there will be a religion called that. I will not begin it.

All the same, I hate that somebody would take the Mammon Passover (which isn’t the official name now since the 19th century I believe) ideas out of their menu just because of flour. (I have read all of the Bible extremely well but I understand the laws to mean what is directly important for the person of faith in directions of their ancient past and mine was pagan, so I can’t answer to the lacking flour of literally all the Israel prophets in the times of famine, as Jews believe they do and should continue to exercise their faith therefor. For me, Christ redeemed faith from these ideals, but what do I know? I still mourn for whatever pagans never tasted Christ’s blood in the ancient world, they could not be redeemed by Judaism anymore.

Can we go on? Typically for myself, this is about food. And even when there is no food, by right of faith, it is STILL about food nothing else.

So Kamut. Possibly. I’m out of suggestions.

I have a few other recipes of this that should list above.
