Homemade Tortellini

 Felt like making tortellini tonight.  Still had some filling mixed up and in the fridge from the other nights ravioli mess.  Starts off with the same basic dough.  Tonight, watched the water content a little closer and it did not turn into a sticky yucko.

After rolling the dough through the pasta roller to a pretty thin level, I used a biscuit cutter to cut each strip into rounds.  Placed a scant 1/2 tsp of the filling onto each round.  Moistened the edge with an egg wash.

Folded them in half. then the fun folding, tucking, bending, and pinchig started.

This was FUN!

Ready to drop into boiling water.  The final product was so terribly wonderful...topped with a marinara sauce.  Was planning on whipping up a vodka sauce, but alas...no cream in the house <GASP>...next time for sure.

  2. I love the name of your blog. Haha. I also love the way this looks. I have two little boys, who are not currently fans of pasta. If they ever are, this just looks like it's fun to prepare.
