Day 166: Cheese Tortellini
Cheese tortellini is a lot easier than it looks. It's fun to make and is a delicious lunch/dinner.
I made this tortellini using my pasta dough. This dough works for almost any pasta variation!
I also stuffed it with an easy cheese filling. It's made with ricotta and parmesan. I like to pipe out my filling, just so I have a little more control. I find that it helps me a lot!
Here I have included a video just so you can reference how to fold the tortellini.
Watch The Video:
To recap (from the video), cut circles from your dough using a cookie cutter. Run along the edges of the circle with a wet finger.
Add 1/2 teaspoon worth of filling, and fold over. Take the two ends of the half moon, and tie them together.
|Level: 👩🏽🍳👩🏽🍳|Time: 1 hour|Serves: 6-8|
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup ricotta
2 tablespoons parmesan
Knead flour, eggs, water, and olive oil together. Let it sit for 30 minutes.
Roll into a large rectangle (thin enough to see through) and cut out circles with a cookie cutter.
Take one circle and run your fingers along the edges of the circle with a wet finger. Add 1/2 a teaspoon of your filling and fold over, making a half moon. Take the two ends together, and pinch. Repeat for all circles.
Boil some salted water, and add your tortellini. Cook for 5-10 minutes, and serve.
