Variations Tortellini

Tortelloni are stuffed pasta, the same shape as tortellini, but larger. They are usually stuffed with ricotta cheese and leaf vegetables, such as spinach.[1] Many variants exist where the vegetables are replaced with stronger ingredients such as porcini or walnuts. Another common filling, especially in the provinces of Modena and Reggio Emilia for tortelloni is a paste made mainly of pumpkin pulp and amaretto cookies.

Tortelloni made with ricotta and herbs are usually served either with ragù or with melted butter and sage leaves.
