Giganteggoli (with egg yolk)

These little beauties are crowd pleasers.  Perfect for this time of year, they sing with the flavors of spring.    Using prepared pasta sheets instead of making your own pasta makes these pretty simple to prepare.  Of course you could always make your own pasta for these if you have the time and inclination.
