The simplest flavours are always the winners. Do you know why?

Generally because if you use great ingredients with simple preparation you can't go wrong. And if Italians have been eating this for generations, I can't see why we should try and re-invent this classic. However there are loads of options to filling your tortellini. Just do a little google and you will come up with endless possibilities.

This is a great starting off point. Thanks to Sophie Budd for this fabulous and easy recipe. Buon Appetito!

To make the filling, wilt the spinach in a pan with butter. Let cool a little. Then squeeze out excess liquid with paper towel. Chop finely.


In a bowl, combine ricotta, nutmeg, parmesan, spinach, salt and pepper. Stir and refrigerate until cool.


Dust a board/bench with semolina.


Roll out pasta dough (to no. 5 on kitchen aid). Place on semolina


Cut out circles of pasta. Place a small amount of filling in the middle.
