  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons soft bread crumbs
  • 2 cups chicken stock or broth
  • Salt and white pepper to taste
  • Basil, parsley, or chives, for garnish
  • Parmesan cheese


  1. Bring the stock to simmer in a saucepan.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg with a fork and continue beating as you add the cheese and bread crumbs. When they are well beaten, add 1/2 cup of the hot stock.
  3. Bring the remaining stock to nearly a boil, scrape in the egg mixture, and whisk it with a fork for 3 or 4 minutes. When you stop beating and let the soup come just barely to a boil. It will break into "rags," hence the name.
  4. Serve immediately, with an extra sprinkling of Parmesan, topped by garnish of your choice.

Makes 2 servings.
