step-by-step directions
  • Heat a large pan over medium-high with a few tablespoons of olive oil. Sauté carrots and parsnips, seasoning with salt, for 2 minutes. Toss in leeks and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a food processor. Puree until smooth. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • Meanwhile, heat stock in a Dutch oven. Once vegetable mixture is cool, stir in cheeses, herbs and spices. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  • Lay pasta sheet on cutting board, cutting in 2 2-inch long strips. Place tablespoons of filling along the strips, 2 inches apart. Brush dough with water then fold top half over. Press edges to seal, pushing out any air pockets. Use a knife or fluted pastry cutter to cut out agnolotti.
  • Place agnolotti in broth and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until pasta is cooked to al dente. Use a slotted spoon to portion out agnolotti into bowls. Ladle broth over top and garnish with parsley.
