This dish is one of the most iconic recipes from Bologna. I was feeling nostalgic and wanted to create a traditional meal from scratch, that took me back to my time in Bologna. I decided to make this popular dish following the exact recipe, so I made the pasta dough, rolled it with a pasta machine and hand made each little tortelloni filled with my spinach and ricotta mixture.
Your guests will notice the difference between homemade pasta and store bought, because of the time and care you put into hand making each delicious tortelloni.
There are many types of filled pasta: ravioli, tortellini, cannelloni, but I love the shape of tortelloni. I paired it with a simple butter and sage sauce and voila…the perfect pasta dish was served and my guests were fulfilled and impressed. Thank you Bologna for inventing these delicious and simple recipes that continue to make people happy.
