Preparation

Step 1

To make the pasta, in a bowl, mix the flour, cheese, and bread crumbs together. In another bowl, mix the remaining ingredients together. Add to the flour mixture and mix well. Gather the dough into a ball; the dough will be quite rough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 6 to 7 hours, or overnight, or until firm enough to grate.

Using the large holes of a cheese grater, grate the dough into a clean towel.

In a large pot, bring the broth to a boil. Add the pasta and boil for about 5 minutes, or until the pasta floats to the surface. Serve immediately.

Note: This pasta freezes very well. If you like, double the pasta recipe and freeze half to have on hand for a quick soup. Spread the uncooked pasta out on a floured baking sheet and freeze until hard. Transfer to plastic bags and freeze. Do not defrost before cooking.

This recipe yields 8 to 10 servings.
