Tortellini are ring-shaped pasta. The yare typically stuffed with a mix of meat (pork loin, ham, Parmesan chees). Originally from the Italian region of Emilia (in particular Bologna and Modena), they are usually served in broth, either of beef, chicken, or both. The origin of tortellini is surrounded by several legends. One says that this dish was born in Castelfranco Emilia (province of Modena). One night during a trip, Lucrezia Borgia checked into the “Corona” inn in the small town. Over the course of the night the host became so captivated by Lucrezia’s beauty that he could not resist the urge to peek into her room through the keyhole. The bedroom was only lit by a few candles, and so he could barely see her navel. This pure and innocent vision was enough to send him into an ecstasy that inspired him to create the tortellini that night.
