Ingredients for 3 people
4 cups flour
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1/4 tsp fresh nutmeg
Salt & pepper
1 tsp olive oil
2 cups tomato sauce
Step 1/5Pour 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.
Step 2/5Flatten 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.
Step 3/5Close the tortellini by chaining them together to form a crown. Cook the crown of pasta in boiling water for 5 minutes and drain well.
Step 4/5In a pan, brown the chopped onion with olive oil, add the tomato sauce, and let it cook for about twenty minutes.
Step 5/5Place 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!
