How to Make Homemade Tortellinin

November 2010

Our Thanksgiving Activity for 2010

Start with pasta dough -- just eggs and flour kneaded to a firm consistency

Here is Sadie, cranking the dough through the pasta maker

We also made some spaghetti, linguini, and lasagne, in case the turtles didn't come out right!

Here Jen is using a glass to cut out circles -- a cookie cutter works too

Sadie puts a dab of the filling (veggies, basil and parmesan) in each one

Pinch the sides together to make a half-moon

Use a fork to ornament the edge (and to make sure it is well-pressed)

The word comes from the Italian for 'turtles' ... makes sense, huh?
