One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
Pieces of pasta stuffed with meat, cheese, or vegetables and folded so as to resemble small peaked hats, served either in broth or with a sauce.
- ‘If the cappelletti are to be cooked at once, drop them a few at a time in plenty of boiling, salted water; they will cook in about 4 to 5 minutes.’
- ‘Cappelletti are traditionally served in broth.’
- ‘Like ravioli or tortellini, cappelletti can be stuffed and sauced with a variety of savory concoctions, such as chicken with cream sauce.’
- ‘Roll more dough, using 1 piece at a time and keeping remainder covered and continue filling and forming cappelletti.’
Italian, literally ‘little hats’.
