National Tortellini Day

It’s National Tortellini Day! Tortellini is a signature dish from the Italian region of Bologna. Ravioli, tortelloni, and tortellacci are all part of the same family of stuffed pastas. The most common fillings for tortellini are ham, white meat, and Parmesan cheese.

In the city of Bologna, there is an organization called the Learned Order of the Tortellini. The members are dedicated to the preservation of traditional tortellini. They wear red and gold hats shaped like tortellini and gold tortellini necklaces at their functions.

Enjoy a big plateful of tortellini topped with cream, pesto, or tomato sauce today! Happy National Tortellini Day!
