These are the REAL Tortellini from Bologna. The Gratifico company makes Tortellini by hand according to the traditional recipe and selects ingredients from the Emilia-Romagna region.
The paste is coarse - made with free-range eggs - and folds around a tasty filling made with PGI Bologna Mortadella cold cut, dry-cured ham and refined PDO mountain Parmigiano Reggiano which was aged for 30 months. They are then shaped in the traditional form called ‘Venus’ navel’.
All ingredients are fresh when processed; a prime-quality product is obtained also thanks to the innovative production technique created in collaboration with the CIRI agrifood centre of the University of Bologna. Tortellini should be savoured in broth, with truffle or ‘just’ with a knob of butter… they’re so delicious that you don’t really need anything else!!
‘Gratifico - the art of pasta from Bologna’ has won an award as the best pasteurised golden Tortellino from Bologna in 2019 in the category ‘fresh pasta’.
