Ricotta and spinach make the most classic vegetarian pairing in Italian cooking. In the traditional "tortellini di magro", it's used also as filling for tortellini, the famous ring-shaped stuffed egg pasta from Bologna.
These tortellini are mild in flavor and very keen to be paired to any kind of sauce. Great with a simple butter and sage sauce or with your regular tomato sauce.
Tortellini are a very traditional Italian fresh pasta, shaped like small rings. Original of Bologna they are traditional filled with meat and served in a clear beef stock for Christmas or any special occasion. This version, with green spinach dough and a vegetarian filling is a very much appreciated alternative to the classic recipe.
