Several nonne in Le Marche wanted to show me how they made passatelli. I was more than willing as long as the instruction included tasting, since I knew that passatelli were strands of a mixture of Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and eggs flavored with nutmeg and lemon rind and pressed directly into steaming chicken soup.
