Tortellini - Italian

by - 2:34 AM

Tortellini are ring-shaped pasta, sometimes also described as "navel shaped" or "belly button". They are typically stuffed with a mix of meat or cheese. Today I served it with a pasta sauce (oregano, garlic, diced onions). The freshly grated cheese topping is Parmesan Cheese. The story behind this traditional Italian cuisine is that, Venus, the goddess of love, spent a night in a local inn. While there, the innkeeper stole a peek at her through the keyhole of her door, and within seconds of seeing the enchanting goddess, he was struck by that divine degree of inspiration. He then went to his kitchen and masterminded the tortellini pasta, said to be sculpted in the shape of Venus’s navel. Everything is made from scratch. For the pasta dough: 2 cups of flour, 2 eggs, half cup of water, salt. Filling: minced pork, parmesan cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, salt.
