Preparation method:

For the pasta: put the flour on a pastry board and make a well in the centre of the mound. Add two teaspoons of salt and two or three tablespoons of olive oil. Starting from the centre of the well, combine all the ingredients and knead together well. When the dough is smooth, set aside to rest for about 1 hour. Roll out the pasta on a board and cut into 10-12cm wide strips. Place a little filling on the lower part of the sheet of pasta at regular intervals. Close by folding the other part over and cut out the individual tortelli using a special pasta cutter.

For the filling: finely mince the boiled shoulder using a meat mincer, add the grated Parmesan cheese and egg yolks. Season with salt and then mix together to form a smooth paste.

For the sauce: blanche the asparagus tips for a few minutes in boiling water. Sauté in a pan for three minutes with the chicken stock, the truffle cream and the fresh truffle cut into shavings. . . . >>>
