Put the eggs, salt, pepper and quite a lot of parsley altogether to the bowl and knead everything together. Do it until everything is completely mixed and look like a dough and can be form.

If the dough is too dry, add more milk or egg on it. Or otherway around, in case of emergency you can add flour, if the dough is not firm enough.
