Difficulty: Easy and Quick
Tortelloni are simply large tortellini. You will want to use cheese tortelloni for this recipe. Remember that although these three cheeses are delicious they are quite rich, so serve this preparation with a simple green salad. I like to serve a sparkling white wine with this dish, such as Asti Spumante or Prosecco.
Yield: Makes 2 servings
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
1/2 pound cheese tortelloni
2 ounces gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
2 ounces mascarpone cheese
2 ounces taleggio cheese, diced
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1. Bring a large pot of abundantly salted water to a rolling boil, then cook the tortelloni until tender and floating on top of the water. Drain.
2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet or saucepan, melt the cheeses over low heat, stirring gently with a spoon.
3. Transfer the tortelloni to a bowl and toss with the cheeses until well coated. Sprinkle on black pepper and serve.
