Preparing vegetarian balls needs time. During my cooking classes I hear many people who declare that they do not have time to stay in the kitchen; but I am sure, they could find it 😉 The real problem is that we give priority to other activities that are often not so important for our lives. If we really feel that cooking something, for us or our family, with high quality food is a good habit, we can create moments to do it. For these long preparations, you can, for example, organize cooking evenings with some friends, sharing the shopping, and making a lots of tasty balls for everyone. It can be a way to spend pleasant hours together and do something useful: you can then freeze your balls and create a good food supply. Here is the recipe for potato and spinach vegetarian balls … I hope you enjoy it 😉
Passatelli are a typical dish of two regions of Italy: Marche and Emilia Romagna; traditionally served in meat broth, we can also taste this recipe in different vegetarian versions, without broth, with the most varied seasonings: with vegetables, with truffles, with a cream of legumes or, as in this case, with baked mushrooms on tasty green spinach bechamel. This version has an extra feature: instead of wheat flour, it contains chestnut flour. I hope you like them 🙂
