Perfect Homemade Tortellini

In a saucepan, heat Parmigiano oil, sear the pork until browned on all sides. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

In a food processor add the mortadella, Prosciutto, and the seared pork to a food processor, pulse to get a crumbly mix and not a paste.

Add grated Parmigiano, 2 whole eggs, ½ tsp of freshly grated nutmeg, season with salt and pepper.

Mix well until homogeneous and reserve.


Fill and shape your tortellini.
