Tortellini Pasticcio Recipe


  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 40 mins
  • Yield: 4-6 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 11/2 cups heavy cream
  • salt to taste
  • 1 pound tortellini
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmagiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 11/2 cups bolognese sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Add the butter, cream and salt to a large sauté pan, turn the heat on to medium and melt the butter into the cream. Bring to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Take off the heat.
  3. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the tortellini. Cook until the tortellini are slightly underdone, 3-5 minutes. Drain well.
  4. Place pan with butter and cream back over medium heat. Add the tortellini and Parmagiano-Reggiano cheese and stir gently until cheese is melted and tortellini are well coated with the sauce.
  5. Coat the bottom of a round or oval baking dish with 1 cup of the bolognese sauce. Add the tortellini with the cream sauce to the dish, then make a circle on top of the tortellini in the center with the remaining half cup of bolognese sauce, leaving about 1 inch around the edges uncovered.
  6. Place the baking dish in the oven and cook for 15 minutes, until the cream sauce is starting to bubble around the edges.
