What Is Sfoglia?

Definition: Sfoglia

Sfoglia (pronounced "sfo-lee-ah") means "to thumb through" in Italian and refers to a variety of handmade fresh egg pasta dough native to Emilia-Romagna. It is made using just flour and eggs, then rolled paper-thin by hand using a wooden rolling pin, which helps the pasta develop its distinct textural characteristics. It's then shaped by hand or cut using simple tools, into styles such as tagliatelle, tortellini, and agnolini.
