Preparation method:

For the pasta: Prepare the pasta by kneading together the flour and eggs, a pinch of salt and a little warm water. Roll out until fairly thin and cut firstly into strips about 7-8 cm wide and then into diamond shapes.

For the filling: Boil 300g spinach, drain, squeeze well and chop finely. Add the Ricotta cheese, hard-grain cheese, eggs, salt and nutmeg. Mix together well to obtain a firm mixture. Put a little filling on each pasta shape and close, starting from one corner to form a plait. Boil the tortelli in plenty of boiling salted water and as soon as they come to the top, drain and season with melted butter, sage and grated cheese.
