In this ‘Piatto’ video recipe, Lulu will demonstrate how to make Tortellini Pasta by hand for an Italian Christmas Dinner. This tortellini filling recipe features all of the ingredients traditional in Italian tortellini including: pork, beef, prosciutto, mortadella, butter, parmigiano reggiano and eggs.

This is the exact Italian Christmas dinner recipe that Lulu has been using to make tortellini from scratch in Italy for decades!

Lulu will use a Kenwood Multipro food processor to blend the meats together. Then, she’ll show how to make the tortellini pasta dough by hand and an old-style Italian Imperia Pasta Machine to stretch the tortellini pasta dough. Using a Kitchenaid pasta attachment? You’ll finish at a setting of ‘6’ when stretching the pasta.
