Tortelloni originate in Emilia-Romagna, specifically Modena, a city highly regarded for its thriving food culture. Indeed, this relatively modest Italian city lays claim to the critically acclaimed Osteria Francescana. Led by Italian chef Massimo Bottura, this restaurant achieved global fame after being crowned the world’s best restaurant in 2018, where the signature pasta of the region features amongst its exquisite selection of dishes.
We pay homage to Emilia-Romagna with this dish and we’ve hand-filled each individual tortellone (the Italian singular of 'tortellini'), with oodles of fresh spinaci, one of our favourite leafy greens which, intriguingly, thrives in cooler temperatures. Aside from imparting a vivid green hue, spinach also offers a superfood-worthy quotient of nutrients and minerals, making it an ideal immune-booster to keep the winter chills at bay. Alongside spinaci, our tortelloni are also filled with ricotta cheese, known for its delicate taste and creamy texture. To finish, we serve with our famous ‘burro di salvia’ (sage butter) which makes a perfect accompaniment; imbuing a delicious herby impression without distracting from the earthy tones of the spinach and the subtle flavour of the ricotta. Top with a sprinkling of Italian cheese and dream wistfully of the beautiful hills of Emilia-Romagna.
