Handmade tortelli filled with pumpkin have a long tradition that dates back to the Renaissance (16th century), in the courts of the Gonzaga and Este family. In the recipe books of the time there are interesting references to Cappellacci with pumpkin. Even today, the Turtell Mantovano is recognized as a typical dish of Mantua, and prepared in several cities of Emilia Romagna, according to recipes slightly revisited.
It is a type of fresh filled egg pasta, typical of the local tradition; they have a rectangular shape and are stuffed with a mixture of baked or boiled pumpkin,
amaretti, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and nutmeg. The combination of ingredients is perfect, since the sweet pumpkin meets the savoury cheese and the bitter amaretto biscuit.
Pumpkin tortelli is a typically autumn dish, traditionally eaten at Christmas Eve. This is also because the pumpkin, which must be of excellent quality, ripens in September.
Pumpkin tortelli is traditionally seasoned with melted butter in a pan, slightly dark and flavoured with sage. Alternatively you can use sautée of onion and tomato with pork sausage, a typical condiment of the Mantua area.
How to store it: store tortelli sealed in a modified atmosphere in a refrigerator at a temperature not exceeding + 4° C. Always check the expiry date. It is also possible to freeze the tortelli up to 6 months from the date of purchase.
