this all of the ingredients you will need for this recipe
some of the kitchen tools you will need.
start first by browning the pork and chopping it up
once cooled put in mixing bowl
add spinach and remaining ingredients and mix adding enough stock to form a stiff paste
cut dough using a 2" cookie cutter (I used a glass)
place dough on a floured surface so it does not stick
add 1/4 tsp. of filling to the center of each
dip your finger in water and run it halfway around the filling then fold in half and press firmly to seal it up once sealed take your two corners and wrap them around to meet and press them together
when complete with forming your tortellini place them on a cookie sheet and let stand for about 45 mins. to 1 hr.
start a pot of boiling water and another small sauce pan with your sauce of chose
after setting bring water to a boil and add tortellini to water and cook for about 20 mins.
to prevent my paste from sticking I gently tossed them in some extra parmesan cheese
