Tortelli di Zucca (Pumpkin Tortelli)
Continuing with the first courses we arrive at perhaps the most famous recipe of the Mantuan cuisine.
Pumpkin tortelli is among the oldest and most traditional recipes of this area, but even here the influences are various. Similar recipes are found in the neighboring lands of Modena and Ferrara, with differences in the shape of the enveloping pasta and in the ingredients of the stuffing. It almost seems that this recipe flowed down the river and the canals of the Po valley, changing slightly at every town it crossed.
