Recipe for tortellini filling

Im going to attempt to make fresh tortellini but Im after ideas for fillings. Any recipes would be appreciated!
I do have jamies italy book and tobys italy book which ill have a look at, but thought i would ask here too.
I have most of my recipes on the computer, so I usually forget that I have cookbooks, not good I know!

Re: Recipe for tortellini filling

Ciao,
I live in Bologna, the place were the tortellino burn.javascript:emoticon('whistle')

PER LA PASTA:
- farina: 800gr.
- uova: 8
PER IL RIPIENO:
- polpa di maiale/PORK:150 gr.
- polpa di vitello/BEEF:150gr.
- salsiccia/SAUSAGE:  100 gr.
- prosciutto crudo/PARMA HAM:100 gr.
- mortadella:50 gr.
- uovo/EGG: 1
- parmigiano grattato/:150 gr.
- pane grattugiato:1/2 spoon
- burro: 30 gr.
- sale: q.b.
- noce moscata: q.b.

I think that would be difficult to find all ingredients   in australia.
Anyway the important think is to prepare a good hit quality broth/brodo.
Carots, onion, meet, water, salt...and leave on the fire almost 2 hours.

see for the method

It sounds like a great filling, it seems like it would make alot though. It should be good to freeze if you do them up individual on a tray first then put them in a freezer bag after they have frozen.

I think i will try this recipe myself soon.. will tell you how it turns out.
this weekend i will be making some gnocchi but may sometime in the next few weeks.

Re: Recipe for tortellini filling

stega, this seems yummie. Though the site is in Italian, but very nicely demonstaring how to make tortellini. Maybe I try. I have friends in Bologna, but I can tell, that pasta is really most fantastic in that city!
