Italy Photo of the Week: Tortelloni
For this Italy photo of the week, we’re in Asolo:
Food shop windows are some of my favorites in Italy, because even the uncooked displays are mouth-watering. This is a tray of ready-made pumpkin-filled tortelloni, dusted with powder to keep from sticking to one another, and just waiting to be scooped up by someone on his or her way home from work. Note that they’re tortelloni – not tortellini. It’s one letter, but it makes a difference. Tortellini are the little ones, but these tortelloni are big – just a few on a plate would be a perfect first course. And now I’m hungry.
