How-to Shape Tortellini

Published on 11 Apr 2014

Tortellini is simply one of many filled pasta shapes, but it involves a bit more work to shape than others (such as ravioli). So if you’re into the meticulous, then you’ll enjoy these. :)

Instead of placing a filling between two squares of pasta & then sealing (ravioli), tortellini makes use of one square folded onto itself into a triangle which is then pinched into a “navel” shape.

Things you’ll need

Amount Ingredient Notes
1-2 kg fresh pasta dough that you may have made earlier
1-2 cups tortellini filling that you have made earlier
flour for dusting
a small pizza wheel or knife using a pizza wheel makes cutting a lot easier
a small bowl water for sealing the individual tortellini
