Making fresh pasta was not daunting to me (I've done it many times) but the prospect of forming about 144 tortellini was. I solved the problem by inviting my friend, Cecelia and my daughter, Kathryn to play, too. The recipe was very straight forward. Make the filling from a piece of poached fish (I used halibut), a little parmigiano cheese, egg yolks and a few seasonings. Then make the pasta, in sheets, cut into squares and stuff and shape into tortellini. It was surprising how quickly we felt competent making them. We were very proud of the beautiful results:
We ate them with the tomato sauce with cream it was delicious!
I can't say this is my favorite kind of tortellini but it was great fun.
