Italian Chicken Soup with Parmesan Dumplings
Why This Recipe Works
Passatelli—dumplings served in a light chicken broth—mainly comprise bread crumbs, egg, and Parmesan cheese. In our recipe, egg whites keep the texture light and airy and bind the bread-and-cheese dumplings. Chicken fat adds richness. To eliminate the need for a special tool, we shaped the dumplings into balls before poaching them in doctored store-bought chicken broth.
