We found this recipe asking an old lady from a small village.
She makes it the way the tradition suggests, every family has his
own recipe and secrets, All the women gather together chatting
when folding cappelletti .In some families they fold cappelletti like
small navels, because it’is very smart and people say it’s better.
This is a dish for particular occasions such as Christmas ,
Easter or New Year’s eve.
They are a tradition in this region called Emilia Romagna, and
they come from Modena. In Reggio Emilia they are called
Cappelletti, in Bologna they are called Tortellini.
Generally they are served with broth or cream.
They’re really good!
