250 g flour
130 ml water
a pinch of salt

200 g ground walnuts

Make the pasta  a day before (March 8th).

Mix the flour, water and salt and make a dough. The dough should be elastic and should not stick to the hands, if needed add more flour.

Take pieces of dough and make  rolls of about 3-4 cm long and 3 mm thickJoin the ends to form a ring. Sprinkle some flour on a paper sheet, put the little rings on it and allow to dry overnight.

In a soup pan bring  1.5 liter water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes. At the end  add the sugar, stir well and cook for another few minutes.

On the  plate  add cinnamon, walnuts and lemon zest to taste.
