I live for pasta. I know that a few of my past posts have digressed this fact, but I will continue to tell all. I remember when I was in elementary and middle school, I would always boil Swanson Chicken broth while cooking a pot of pasta to add to it. Tortellini was my favorite type of stuffed pasta to eat in soup. And because I did not know how to make them then, my mother would buy the frozen kind. Although you could barely taste the filling inside them, I continued to crave the al dente crevices. So for me, eating any type of pasta is about texture. I also loved, loved, loved, when my mother made tortellini with cream sauce and shrimp. We had this only once every few months because of the potential heart attacks one bowl of it could cause.
I am a huge fan of these babies. One of my recent posts about ravioli's, features the recipe for the filling that I used to create these tortellini. I dare you to give it a try! I have copied a link below to help guide you through the shaping process of tortellini.
