- 7 oz all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- 8 cups meat broth
40 minutes preparation + 3 minutes cooking
Pour the flour out onto a flat work surface and shape into a well. Add the eggs to the middle and knead into a smooth dough.
Let rest for 20 minutes covered with a cloth or plastic wrap.
Roll the dough into a very thin sheet using a rolling pin or pasta machine. Then, flour lightly and fold the pasta over onto itself several times. Use a small knife to cut the folded dough into 1/10 – inch wide wide.
Spread the noodles out on a lightly floured baking sheet to dry.
Then, bring the broth to a boil in a large pot and, as soon as it boils, add roughly chopped noodles. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.
Remove from heat and serve immediately.
To give the soup even more flavor, try adding grated Parmigiano Reggiano.
In Italy, soup (minestra) is a first course (primo piatto), served after the appetizer.
Minestre distinguish themselves from other first courses like pasta and risotto due to their brothy base.
Often quite rustic in nature, soups are really tasty and very nutritious, ideal for warming up on a cold winter day.
