UNUSUAL ITALIAN SOUP - "Cheese Noodle"
Sun, 07/24/05 3:17 AM
A Boston friend with an Italian heritage let me a copy his mother's notes - not quite a detailed recipe for what is to me an unusal soup.
Basically, grated cheese, breadcrumbs, an beaten eggs were combined, seasoned and the mix was put through a pasta mill or the coarse plate of a food grinder. The result was a sort of noodle.
These noodles were dried for a time and then poached in chicken broth that might also have had a few chopped vegetables (onion, celery, carrots, etc.) with parsley added as a gaenish.
This sounds GOOD. The recipe notes are too incomplete for me to want to try. Does anyone recognize this soup? Can you tell me the name and origin? Most of all, can anyone furnish a detailed recipe?
