If I should choose any food that I must eat everyday for the rest of my life, well, it's definitely Tortellini!
They are typical of my hometown, Bologna (actually my "home-province" lol) so I've been eating them since I was very, very little...I never get tired of them and I could never live without eating them! :D
I am writing this instructable to teach you how to make tortellini from scratch!
It may take some time to make them, but believe me, it's worth it...
You can't compare these homemade tortellini to the already made ones. I am sure you know what I mean if you taste them!
ps: these are the original Tortellini Emiliani. You can call them tortellini because of this filling. The ones with a different kind of filling have a different name.
