National Tortellini Day!!

Fat Tuesday to Portly Wednesday. Or even Ash Wednesday if you do. Whatever your reason make time today to celebrate National Tortellini Day!! Why? Why not? Maybe because it is one of the most unique pasta shapes, supposedly inspired by Lucrezia Borgia’s navel. Those nutty Borgias knew how to party. Maybe it’s for the little individual burst of cheese or filling that makes the mouth go ” Damn!” when eating with sauce. Maybe it’s cause they look like little rings, and who doesn’t like jewelry. Whatever your reasoning or delusion, buon appetito!

Dish! is eating theirs in a simple pommodoro sauce with a kiss of truffle oil. Pull up a chair…..
