Homemade Hand-rolled Bolognese Pasta: Taglietelle, Tortelloni & Tortellini

Here is another article by A Canadian Foodie. In this one she has put down in words what I can only demonstrate! Thanks Valerie!


The pasta made here are in order from beginning to end: farfalle (butterflies) or strichetti (pinch in Bolognese dialect); ricotta stuffed tortelloni. Also pictured are tortellini (much smaller than the tortelloni) and tagliatelle (the long noodles) and maltagliati (with the leftover pasta).

Warning: be careful when you fold the pasta sheet over the table...make sure it does not slip off, otherwise, you'll have to go out for dinner!

Not only did Valerie make the pasta in Bologna, but she made it again back home in Alberta, Canada to the delight of her friends! Apparently the birds also appreciated Valerie's efforts to recreate the sauce!
