This unique yeasted pasta is a quick weekday meal and one of my go to’s. I tend to make bread on the weekends and set aside some of the dough in the fridge to be able to make these during the week. The pasta is similar to a dumpling and takes on the flavor of the bread dough that is used.
Check out our cecamariti recipe here! Another excellent way to make these is to sauté them in butter.
