Preparation method

  • To make the plain dough, mix 500g of pasta flour with five eggs and 10ml of olive oil and knead to create an elastic dough.
  • Leave to rest for half an hour.
  • To make the parsley dough, mix 500g of pasta flour with five eggs, 10ml of olive oil, and the parsley chlorophyll and knead to create a bright-green, elastic dough.
  • Leave to rest for half an hour.
  • Put 400g of grey shrimp in a blender together with the bay leaf oil, egg whites, and xanthan gum and blend into a smooth farce.
  • Add the fish fumet while still blending.
  • Now fold in the 600g of grey shrimp, chives, and shallot and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Roll out both pasta doughs to the thinnest setting on the pasta machine.
  • Pass the parsley pasta through the tagliatelle cutter.
  • Brush the normal pasta sheets with a little water and place the parsley tagliatelle strips closely together on top, lengthwise.
  • Dust the dough with a little flour and use a rolling pin initially to press the two pasta doughs firmly together.
  • Pass the striped pasta sheet through the pasta machine once more, down to the thinnest setting.
  • Place the sheet on a work surface with the stripy side down.
  • Spoon the filling into portions in the centre of the dough and fold one third of the sheet over the portioned fillings.
  • Press firmly between the fillings so that the dough has the original thickness again.
  • Fold over once again so that the fillings are enclosed by the dough and press firmly until the dough has the same thickness as the rest of the pasta.
  • Cut the pasta, preferably using a roller with a serrated blade.
  • Cook the cappelletti in plenty of boiling salted water for two to three minutes until the pasta starts to float.
  • Serve immediately or cover and keep warm in the hot cupboard.

Serving suggestions

  • Delicious in a composition with components of eel, tomato, and soya beans.
  • Goes perfectly with leek, parsley, and shallot.
  • Combines well with green apple, mushrooms, and cavolo nero.
