Tortellini have their origin in Emilia Romagna, between Bologna and Modena are traditionally stuffed with a mix of Mortadella, Parmesan cheese, Pork, egg and nutmeg and served in a rich capon broth. Legend states that Venus came to stay at an inn located in Castelfranco Emilia, which is halfway between Bologna and Modena. The inn keeper was so fascinated with her beauty that he spied on her through the keyhole, but the only part that he could see was her navel. From here, he was inspired to create a round shaped pasta which is the supposed origin of the “ombelico di Venere” or Venus’ navel.
