  2. For the stuffing, mix the ricotta-cheese with the Trentingrana-cheese and the herbs. Add salt and pepper and a little bit of breadcrumbs, if the dough is too soft.
  3. At this point, roll the dough with the thickness of 2/3 mm.
  4. Put a tablespoon of ricotta every 6 cm, brush the dough with the beaten egg to make the dough stick.
