after some years I am back and may I say happy to follow you again! I love passatelli, of course, I am from Emilia Romagna...and naturally I cannot eat them unless cooked in a clear capon broth, cause that is the way my granny made them ! STILL , the passatelli recipe is very close! your social media marketing partner
