INGREDIENTS:
10,6 ounces Stale bread
3,5 ounces flour
1,8 ounces Speck (smoked ham)
1,8 ounces Salame
(If you can't find it, you can use whatever kind of charcuterie you like, just respect the dosage)
1,8 ounces butter
onion
parsley
2 eggs
milk
meat broth
salt

PREPARATION
- Dice the bread and the charcuteries in very small dices;
- In a pot, melt the butter and yellow the onion and the parsley, both minced;

- Once they're done, strain them and put them in 0,4 gallons of hot broth.

ENJOY.

I think I'm in love.
Jigen, are you married?
I am, but I can get a divorce if you are cooking the food in those pictures!



Side note: When you tell us Yanks to scramble two eggs, we call scrambled eggs cooking eggs in a skillet that have been broken and stirred up. The eggs are cooked until soft scrambled or hard scrambled and served usually for breakfast with bacon or sausage and toast.

I am pretty sure what you are calling for in your recipes is for two eggs to be "beaten". For that we use a whisk or a fork. For scrambling, we usually cook the eggs alone and it would make them useless for your recipes.

For the recipe from Liguria, I have noticed that the most typical dish in Liguriancuisine, the Pesto, has already been posted. So, I have decided to post another famous recipe. Here we go.

PANSOTI AL SUGO DI NOCI (LIGURIA)



INGREDIENTS:
17,6 ounces flour
7 ounces spinach
7 ounces beet
5,3 ounces borage
5,3 ounces Garden cress
1,8 ounces calf brain
1,8 ounces calf sweetbread (Animelle)
3,5 ounces buttermilk curd (RIcotta)
0,7 ounces butter
5 eggs
garlic
nutmeg
salt, pepper

PREPARATION
DOUGH:
- On the table, put the flour, add three eggs, salt and warm water. Add if you need it. Once you obtained a smoot and soft dough, cover with a cloth and let it rest for 40 minutes;

STUFFING:
- Clean the vegetables and stew the beet in salted water;
- Put brain and sweetbread in cold water for an hour, then scald them in boiling water and skin them;
- Melt the butter in a pot and add sweetbread and brain;
- Strain off the vegetables, dry them. In a pot mix them with the meat, cheese, minced garlic, salt, pepper, nutmeg and the other two eggs;

- Take the dough, soften it and stretch to obtain a thin sheet.
- On half of this sheet, place small portions of the stuffing. Keep a distance of 2 inches from one other;
- Cover them with the other half of the sheet and press carefully on the sides of each "Pansotto";
- Cut the Pansotti with a knife.
- Boil them in salted water.

NUT SAUCE (FOR PANSOTTI)

INGREDIENTS:
10,6 ounces chestnuts (You can use already shelled chestnuts)
1 ounce pine nuts
1,8 ounce grated parmesan
1,8 ounce basil
garlic
olive oil
salt, pepper

PREPARATION:
- Scorch the pine nuts in the oven and beat them in a mortar, together with the chestnuts;
- Warm the oil and yellow the garlic and a few basil lives;
- Add the mashed pine nuts and chestnuts and cook for a few minutes;
- Take the pot of the fire;
- Salt, put hte pepper, and add oil, parmesan and a little of the water you used to cook the Pansotti

ENJOY.

No, I'm not married
Thanks for the tip. I tought "to scramble an egg" was the English term for the Italian "sbattere un uovo": to mix white and yolk with a fork. I am always in need to improve my English. Thanks a lot.
To tell the truth, I never made many of the recipe I posted, because I don't always have the time to cook such elaborated dishes. My mother loves Cassoeula, and she cooks it often, but I cant' stand the smell of cooked cabbage. Her youngest sister is specialized in Tiramisu. She always makes it for the day of the Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix . I can't eat it because of the amound of white egg, which I am allergic to, but I have helped her making it a few times. I have done Knodelns several times. It's a great way to re-use old bread. I can make a pretty good Aglio Olio e Peperoncino. My father would eat them all day.
I love to cook, especially cooking for women, but my cooking have proved to be really fattening for them. They try it, ad their own waistline's peril Too bad all of my female friends are so worried about their weight, even if they're thin. Oh, well. They don't know what they are missing.
Thanks again, Moore. See you soon.

I see from your profile that you were in the navy. Which rank were you? Navy and Air Forces' ranks are almost impossibile for me to recognize.

Oh hell yes! You're rivaling the Plus-size Paysite Board in fact.

I'm working consecutive 12hr shifts with a 1.5 hour commute and have no time to cook, but that'll change when I get some time off (for both activities). Just being a voyeur for now. . .

This is my post number 666... So, I'm gonna post something devilish for you.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

TORTA MENEGHINA (MILANO)



INGREDIENTS for 4 people

4 eggs
10,5 ounces white flour
7 ounces of chestnuts flour
1 small bag of yeast
7 ounces of sugar
4 spoons of olive oil
1 glass of milk
3,3 pounds of apples

PREPARATION (It must be prepared the day before you want to eat it)
- Beat the eggs with the flour. Then add the other ingredients, except for the apples;
- Skin the apples and cut them in slices;
- Put the apple in the dough and mix;
- Cover an oven pan with some butter, and pour the dough in it;
- Put the dough in the oven. Set the oven at 200 degrees, and cook for 40 minutes (more or less);
- Once it's done, dust it with the chestnuts flour;
- Let it rest in a dry and warm place.

HOW TO SERVE IT:
- Cut a good slice, and put it on the dish;
- Serve, and put on the table a bottle of liquour;
- Each one should soak its slice with the dose of liquour they prefer.

WHIC LIQUOR TO USE:
My grandmother always said to use Grand Marnier, because of its orange flavour. But to keep it milanés, I suppore you could soak your slice with a good dose of Fernet. But i think you can use any liquor you want, as long it has fruit or herbs flavour.

ENJOY.

And they will keep coming, as long as my university duties will allow me to do it. This should be my last year before the bachelor degree, so I will be too busy even to breath. Let's hope for the best.
