It’s National Tortellini Day! Tortellini is a signature dish
from the Italian region of Bologna. Ravioli, tortelloni, and tortellacci
are all part of the same family of stuffed pastas. The most common
fillings for tortellini are ham, white meat, and Parmesan cheese.
In the city of Bologna, there is an organization called the Learned
Order of the Tortellini. The members are dedicated to the preservation
of traditional tortellini. They wear red and gold hats shaped like
tortellini and gold tortellini necklaces at their functions.
Enjoy a big plateful of tortellini topped with cream, pesto, or tomato sauce today! Happy National Tortellini Day!
Can't have pasta, but I miss it!!
Wish I had known that earlier - I love Tortellini. I will have to celebrate another day.
Yummmmmmm! I could go for some right now.
I like it with a cream sauce.
