Directions:

Parmigiano Reggiano cream
STEP 1

To make Parmigiano Reggiano cream, first heat the cream in a saucepan. Add the grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese 1 tablespoon at a time, continuing to stir with a whisk. Continue stirring over a low flame until all the cheese is used.

STEP 2

In the end, the consistency should be similar to a custard. Complete with a pinch of salt and nutmeg.

Passatelli
STEP 1

Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir the eggs in with a fork until a dough forms. Dough should be soft, and a little bit sticky, but not too much. Add a bit of flour or breadcrumbs if very wet. Cover with plastic wrap and let dough rest for about 10 minutes or so.

STEP 2

Bring broth to a gentle boil

STEP 3

Working with ¼ of the dough at a time, place each portion into a large-holed potato ricer. Press the dough through the ricer. To release the pasatelli, scrape off the strands with the edge of a sharp knife. Let the strands fall directly into the boiling broth. The passatelli strands will be just over an inch long. Cook until the strands float to the top, just a minute or so. Continue with the rest of the dough. With a spider strainer or a large slotted spoon, transfer the passatelli to bowls for serving keeping them in a warm oven.

STEP 4

When all the passatelli are cooked, ladle some broth or the Parmigiano Reggiano cream into the passatelli-filled bowls and serve immediately, adding extra grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar aged 25 years. Serve immediately. Smile!

    SERVINGS

Although it is classified as “pasta”, the soft strands of passatelli are made of breadcrumbs instead of flour. This traditional dish was popular in the rural low-income areas of Italy, where people used leftovers and simple foods like stale bread, cheese and eggs to create tasty dishes. Today, passatelli are mostly homemade and are often combined with grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and eggs for a delicious and hearty meal. In this particular variation Chef Michele combines passatelli with a Parmigiano Reggiano cream and finishes it with a delicate drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar.

Ingredients:

Parmigiano Reggiano cream

6oz heavy cream
2oz grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
Nutmeg
Black Pepper

Passatelli

6oz bread crumbs
7oz finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, plus more for serving
A touch nutmeg
A touch of lemon zest
A touch salt
3 large brown eggs
Chicken broth (for cooking passatelli)

Aged Balsamic vinegar (25 years)

Look for the seal of authenticity.

For a better experience always use authentic Parmigiano Reggiano, made in Italy.
