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 flavour and great paired with any kind of sauce. Try a simple butter and sage sauce or a regular tomato sauce.
Tortellini are a very traditional Italian fresh pasta, shaped like small rings. From Bologna, they are traditionally filled with meat and served in a clear beef stock for Christmas or any special occasion. This version, with green spinach pasta dough and a vegetarian filling is a delicious alternative to the classic recipe.
