Originally from Lazio, pasta grattugiata is an ancient and rustic preparation. The name literally translates as “grated pasta,” and it is simple to make. The ingredients are inexpensive and, like many rustic Italian dishes, the dish was created by the poor to utilize old or stale bread. It is served in broth to make a very savory and deeply comforting dish.
