Categories    : Soups & Stews

Ingredients

·         1      cup  fresh grated parmesan cheese
·         1/2  cup  ricotta cheese
·         1/4  cup flour,  I use gluten free flour
·         1 egg -- beaten
·         2      tablespoons basil
·         1/4  teaspoon nutmeg
 
In medium bowl stir ingredients together until just smooth.  With a dessert spoon gather a tablespoon of mixture, using a second spoon smooth into a dumpling.  Drop into a simmering soup.  Simmer partially covered until all dumplings are cooked through.  About six minutes.

Great on Chicken Soup, Hot Italian Sausage Soup, Sausage Soup Italian Style (brothy not to be confused with Hot Italian Sausage Soup)
