Thanks for this recipe! Tried today with a small variation: Not having carrots for the broth, I added 2 tablespoons of tomato puree halfway through cooking. Very tasty and perfect for winter.

what is growth?

Ada Parisi July 23, 2015 - 10:21

Hi! Unfortunately is a mistake of Google translator that translate the italian ' growth’ with growth: the ' growth’ is a fresh cow cheese, similar to ' soft cheese’ cheese, very creamy. You can use instead a creamy fresh cheese. Thanks for being here, ADA
