Pappardelle sulla lepre

(Pappardelle with hare)

Prepare a thin layer with 500 gr. of flour, 4 eggs and a pinch of salt; then cut the pasta with a small wheel in quite large stripes in order to form the famous "pappardelle". Cut a hare in quite big pieces after having cleaned it in water and vinegar. Put the pieces in a pan with butter, home-made ham, onion, celery, carrot and parsley which have to be finely chopped. Fry lightly and then cook the hare adding some meat broth and tomato sauce.

When the hare is cooked, keep some of this meat and chopped it with a semicircular chopping knife. Then put again the meat in the sauce and dress the "pappardelle", previously cooked in salted water. Add many Parmesan cheese.
