The Sfoja Gross (or Browse stuffed or upholstered Squares) is a fresh pasta made by hand and with a similar filling to that of cappelletti spread evenly over the surface of the pastry. It is cut into small forms (small squares) and served on board or dry with sauce or other condiments. In Romagna, the housewives manifactured this sheet when they did not have the time needed to prepare the cappelletti (whose realization is long and elaborate), or to use the remains of the pastry to cappelletti. It 'a dish that reminds me of my childhood, when my mother and my grandmother realizzavano, strictly in broth, and that's how I prepare me even today.
