    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Brown the chicken breast in the butter, seasoning it with salt and pepper; set aside. Chop mortadella finely and combine in a bowl with the chicken, ricotta, 1 cup grated Romano, 1 egg, nutmeg, salt and pepper, and mix well.
    2. 2
      Heap the flour in a mound on a board and make a well in the center. Break in the 2 remaining eggs and knead into soft, smooth dough. Roll out into a thin (1/8" thick) sheet and cut into 1-1/4" circles (you can use a small juice glass).
    3. 3
      To make tortellini, place a little of the filling in the center of each circle and fold the pasta in half, pressing it around the edges to seal in filling. Then wind the folded edge around the tip of your index finger and press the 2 ends together to form a ring.
    4. 4
      Bring chicken broth to a simmer.
    5. 5
      Bring the stock to a boil. Drop in tortellini and cook until al dente, about 3-4 minutes. Drain and serve in bowls of broth, passing remaining grated cheese.

      I was a bit apprehensive when I printed this recipe, but surprisingly the tortellini were easy to make and came out perfect! I was afraid of the filling leaking out, but that didn't happen either! I had enough filling for 2 batches, so I made another batch to send to my son's house. I know I will be making these quite often!

      This brought back lots of memories of me helping my grandmother make tortellini! I did omit the proscuitto because my husband doesn't like it. Like another reviewer, I had some problems with the dough. I added some water and it worked out fine. I did have a lot of filling left over though, I'm not sure why, but I won't complain! I froze it and will use it soon when I make another batch of this!

      Great recipe! I did have some problems with the dough. It needed just a bit of water to make it workable. I added diced tomatoes and parsley to the broth.
