Ingredients for 3 people
4 cups of flour
1 cup of ricotta cheese
1/2 cup of grated parmesan
1/4 tsp of fresh nutmeg
salt & pepper
1 tsp of olive oil
2 cups of tomato sauce
Pour the flour onto the cutting board and form a hole in the center. Add the eggs and mix until the dough is smooth and homogeneous. Let the dough rest 30 min in the fridge and roll out.
Flatten the dough using a pasta maker and cut into rectangles. Stuff each rectangle with a filling of ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Close the rectangles into triangles to form tortellini.
Close the tortellini by chaining them together to form a crown. Cook the crown of pasta in boiling water for 5 minutes and drain well.
In a pan, brown the chopped onion with olive oil, add the tomato sauce, and let it cook for about twenty minutes.
Place the crown in the center of a baking dish and pour the tomato sauce in the center. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake 5 minutes at 350˚F. Decorate with fresh basil and enjoy!
