    3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the minced veal, minced beef, sausage filling, and diced mortadella.
    4. With your hands, combine everything, including 2 eggs and 8 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese. Knead the dough thoroughly until it is homogeneous.
    5. Finely chop two rosemary sprigs, twenty sage leaves, a sprig of parsley, and half an onion. Chop the spices and add them to the ground meat.
    6. With your hands, peel the chestnuts and cut them into small pieces. Add the chestnuts to the meat filling, along with the slices of bread that have been well squeezed from the milk.
    7. After you've peppered everything, grate on some nutmeg and mix it all together.
