Tortellini is a type of stuffed pasta. It originated from the Italian city of Bologna. It is in a ring shape, with a filling inside. Anything can go in the filling, including meat, cheese (commonly parmesan or pecorino), egg, etc. It is in a fresh form, so it cooks quick, but the shelf life is short.
