Pasta dough is pinched off in 1/2 inch pieces to make small dumplings.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs
Place flour in a medium bowl, making a well for the eggs. Introduce the eggs, and mix with a fork; then knead to form a stiff dough. Pinch off half-inch pieces of batter with fingers, and cook in a large pot of boiling water until dumplings float to the top, 5 to 15 minutes.
