      Add more egg or durum wheat semolina as needed. Leave the dough to rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

      Flatten the dough by hand and divide into 5cm wide pieces. Roll out the dough by hand or with a pasta machine on the thinnest setting.

    8. Step 8

      Place about 1 teaspoon of filling on the long strips of dough, in the middle. Brush around the filling with egg.
