Few things beat homemade tortellini. When we are having people over for dinner, I like to make them in several different sizes with a variety of fillings.
These small four cheese tortellini are one of our favourites. You can use any four cheeses you like but this time I used equal amounts of fresh Mozzarella, Camembert, smoked Cheddar and Parmasan.
Feel free to experiment with others. If you like the cheese, you really can’t go wrong.
As for a sauce, use whichever you fancy. A good tomato pasta sauce is perfect for this dish. I also like to make fresh chicken stock and serve the cheesy tortellinis in it. So good! Even just a little olive oil and garlic is perfect.
In order to make this recipes, you will first need to read my post on how to make my fresh pasta recipe.
Making the pasta without a pasta machine…
It is good to have a pasta machine but if you don’t, you can do it the old fashion way with a rolling pin. It is essential that you sheets of pasta are paper thin.
When held up, you should be able to see your fingers through the pasta sheet.
