Tortellini of Valeggio

Very thin kneaded egg pasta filled with various meats (beef, pork, veal and chicken) and aromas, these tortellini are commonly called with the romantic name of “Love Knots” due to a legend set at the end of the 14th century, in which the nymph Silvia and Captain Malco left a yellow silk handkerchief knotted on the banks of the Mincio river as a token of their love after the clashes with the Visconti army. In broth or dry, tortellini are also quite easy to knot, or at least you can try them in a short cooking class.

We include a lunch based on different types of tortellini in our travel proposal:
