How to prepare tortellini in castrated cock broth

Flame the capon wings, clean and wash them, then place them in a pan with high edges, together with the onion cut in half, 1 carrot also cut in half lengthwise. Add two liters of water and the bay leaf, then add the nut.

Bring to a boil, after reducing the flame and continue cooking for an hour, skimming the impurities that will emerge during cooking.

Beat the egg whites until stiff with a pinch of salt and pour them into the boiling broth, stirring for about two minutes, then remove from the heat and strain with a dense mesh strainer.

Transfer the broth to a smaller saucepan, add the zucchini and the remaining carrot, then bring to the boil.

Add the cappelletti, cook for 4 minutes and serve in bowls, after having sprinkled the whole surface with Parmesan.
