Introduction: Homemade Tortellini - Start to Finish

Tortellini Recipe & Tutorial. I had lots of help filming and editing this from my husband, David Mandel.

In this video, I show you how to make fresh pasta using only semolina flour, water, and salt. Then I show you how to turn your sheets of pasta into delicious, hand-made tortellini. 

And for even more obsessive detail, check out my blog post here.

does it need to be semolina flour?

You can use all-purpose flour to make pasta, but for this eggless version, I think you need the strength of semolina flour. I would be worried that an AP flour pasta made without eggs might be too delicate or get gummy. Of course, there's nothing wrong with experimenting!

awesome always wanted to make tortellinis. Would adding in tomato or meat sauce divert away from the tortellini taste?

 Thanks - I don't make so much at any given time (I'm new to homemade pasta making) that I'd have to worry about that.

 is the towel dampened to help keep the pasta from drying out?

 If you work fast enough, you don't need the towel dampened. I try to avoid it because I don't want my pasta getting wet and mushy, but if you're making a lot, a very lightly dampened towel is a good idea.
