This is the easiest homemade pasta dough I ever made! Its just plain breadcrumbs, grated parmesan cheese and eggs. The pasta is then cooked in chicken broth. Thats it...this meal takes less than 30 minutes to make! I served it with crusty homemade garlic toast! I found this recipe on the Internet, but the photos are my own.

How To Make passatelli (cheese pasta dough)

  • 1
    Mix the cheese and breadcrumbs together in a large bowl.
  • 2
    Then add in the eggs and mix well to form a very wet dough.
  • 3
    Bring the chicken broth to a simmer in a large pot.
  • 4
    Line 2 cookie sheets with waxed paper.
  • 5
    Form the dough into 3 equal balls and pass each dough ball, seperately, through a potato ricer with the large hole attachment, onto the lined cookie sheets, as in my photo. Or you can just pass the dough through the ricer, placed over the simmering broth. That way it goes directly into the broth.
