As Candi wrote below, this autumn’s first gloomy Sunday came and along with it the inevitable Italian soup with passatelli – a fluffy kind of pasta made of grated parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, eggs and nutmeg.
Living with an Italian, I have become a regular member of the mandatory Sunday family lunch club, a concept that probably only southern Europeans are very familiar with! No matter what age you are, as an Italian (or in my case living with one), you just know that Sunday is not worthy its name unless you make presence at the family lunch! And this autumn’s first cold and rainy Sunday was no exception.
As we gathered around the dining table, Grandma, better known as the family’s queen of the kitchen, brought this steaming hot bowl on the table, its fumes effortlessly conquering the air, filling my nostrils with its delicate, yet seducing scent. I will never forget the very first time I was introduced to this simple, yet absolutely delicious dish. Being a cheese lover, parmesan cheese was no mystery to me, but to have pasta made mostly of parmesan cheese, now that was a newsflash and quite delightful one too! Of course I loved it! I had two platefuls!
So, as soon as the cold gets to you, make sure to try out the passatelli soup recipe that will warm your body and soul right to the core!
