Galet soup: traditional recipe for a festive first course

This galette soup recipe is typical of Christmas Day, but I assure you that it is just as delicious if you prepare for any other occasion. Galets are a conch-shaped pasta, and you can find it in various sizes. I chose the largest one I could find because I thought it would be easier to fill, and I was not mistaken, although with three galets per person we had more than enough.

I have seen recipes in which the pasta is cooked a little previously, and then filled, but I liked the version in which the pasta is filled raw, it is much easier and also the pasta does not break or break. hits so easily. I'm thinking that the galets support a lot of fillings in addition to the minced meat. What will you fill them with?
