Strangolapreti (Bread dumplings with spinach)


  • 1 kilo of dry bread
  • 500 g spinach
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 g Trentino Grana cheese
  • 100 g butter
  • a little olive oil
  • ½ l milk
  • salt and pepper
  • nutmeg
  • sage.

Place the diced dry bread in lukewarm milk for about 3 hours. Then add the previously boiled and chopped spinach sauteed in butter with salt, pepper and nutmeg to the bread. Add the finely chopped onion sauteed in the oil, the grated Trentino Grana cheese, the eggs, salt to the bread-spinach mixture, mix well with a wooden spoon. If the mixture is too soft, add breadcrumbs to it until takes on grater consistency. The strangolapreti dough is now ready to be either rolled into a long cord and diced (making small balls to be rolled over fork thongs, for example) and put boiling salted water. When the pasta rise to the top they are ready to be drained and served with abundant grated Grana and hot butter previously flavoured with sage at medium heat.
