Spanakopita Spinach Tortellini!
We recently purchased a new pasta machine. As we debated what the first thing we would make should be (Plain pasta? No. Running before you walk is always more fun!), I had an idea:
One of Porter's favorite meals ever is Spanakopita. What if I took the basic flavors of spanakopita, made a filling from it... and then wrapped it up in spinach pasta dough, for a funky take on tortellini?
So, I made a filling out of Feta and Ricotta cheeses, flavoured with dill and nutmeg, and wrapped them up in a homemade pasta made from fresh spinach.
It turned out wonderfully! So much so, that my husband declined the idea of sauce, and loudly proclaimed it to be the only pasta he's ever had that didn't NEED sauce.
Awesome - Hope you enjoy this Spanakopita Spinach Tortellini as much as he does!
