Little Hats in Broth / Cappelletti in Brodo


  • 1 recipe Homemade Chicken Broth
  • 3 todozen Cappelletti di Pollo
  • Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • Ingredients


  1. I have many wonderful memories of making “little hot” soup with my mother and grandmothers.  The cappelletti I usually choose for this soup are stuffed with a finely ground chicken filling, though on occasion I serve Grandma Galasso’s version, stuffed with beef, pork, and veal.  Sometimes I like to be untraditional and serve my cappelletti in brood with a thin slice of lemon and fresh steamed spinach added with the broth to each bowl.
  2. SERVES 8 to 10
  3. In a large pot, bring the chicken broth to a boil.  Add the cappelletti and cook until they bob to the surface.  Ladle the broth and the cappelletti into individual serving dishes and sprinkle with grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.
