Dish of passatelli in Emilian broth

Ingredients passatelli in broth for 4 people

  • 1 liter of meat broth (with the Bollito Box you will have all the ingredients)
  • 80 g of Parmigiano Reggiano
  • 80 g of fine breadcrumbs (or stale bread)
  • 2 medium eggs
  • nutmeg to taste
  • Salt and Pepper To Taste

Passatelli in broth procedure

Place the eggs (at room temperature) in a large glass bowl with the breadcrumbs, grated Parmigiano Reggiano, ground nutmeg, salt and a pinch of pepper. Let's start mixing the mixture well with our hands, if it is too thick add another egg.

Cover and let the dough rest for 10 minutes. Once the minutes have passed, take a small portion at a time and insert it into the potato masher with large holes. We should have made passatelli of about 4-5 cm in length which we will place on a cutting board with a cloth.

Now bring the broth to the boil, set some aside for serving and pour the remainder into the passatelli. When they start to surface (after about 3-4 minutes), collect them with a slotted spoon and place them in the serving dish which will have already been filled with the broth. Sprinkle with a generous dose of grated Parmigiano Reggiano and serve hot with a parsley leaf.
