Canederli with Monte Veronese DOP

A recipe of the Monti Lessini Restaurant

A traditional recipe revisited to enhance local products such as Monte Veronese DOP, a local cheese from Lessinia, a meeting place between Venetian and Trentino traditions, and butter, milk and grana cheese of Vallagarina.

Ingredients for 4 people

  • 3 sandwiches
  • 1 onion
  • butter to taste
  • parsley to taste
  • 100 g of Monte Veronese DOP cheese
  • milk to soften the bread to taste
  • Trentino parmesan cheese to taste


  1. Cut the stale bread and soften it with a little milk
  2. Meanwhile, in a pan, stew the onion with a little butter
  3. Once the bread is soft, add the onion, chopped parsley and grated Parmesan cheese. If the dough is too wet, add some grated bread.
  4. Form small balls by inserting small pieces of Monte Veronese DOP cheese in the center to obtain a stringy heart
  5. Cook in boiling salted water
  6. Once afloat, drain and season the dumplings with parmesan and melted butter.

Preparation times: 1 hour for the preparation of the dough and 5 minutes for cooking.

We recommend pairing with: Marzemino wine from Cantina d’Isera.
