What is the difference between tortellini and ravioli?
Ravioli are usually square, with a flat underside and rounded top, with edges cut at a sharp angle and sometimes frilled with a fork. Tortellini are ring or navel-shaped, at times resembling a tiny croissant or even a wonton.
How do Italians eat tortellini?
In Italy, meat tortellini are traditionally served in broth, but they are enjoyed with other toppings, too: cheese sauce, cream sauce, pesto or tomato sauce.
Do you put a sauce with tortellini?
Toss refrigerated tortellini with a lot of sauce (the ratio should be 1 part ravioli to 2 parts sauce), then throw everything into a baking dish. If you have time, we’re partial to this meat sauce.
