COOK'S TIPS


Tortellini is a type of stuffed pasta. The pasta is shaped into a circle, then stuffed and folded in half. The ends are twisted to create tiny ring shapes.


Use finely minced 'Trim Lamb' or minced, lean skinless chicken as low fat substitutes for the beef. Do not overcook when browning in Step 2.
