Instructions Checklist
  • Make the pasta dough: In the bowl of a food processor, combine eggs and flour; process until the dough comes together. Run the processor for 5 minutes to start kneading the dough. Transfer the dough to a clean work surface, and knead 4 to 5 minutes. The dough should be soft and smooth and should not stick to your fingers when you pinch it. Cover the dough with plastic wrap, and let stand 30 minutes.

  • Make the filling: Heat a small saute pan over medium heat. Add olive oil and shallots; saute shallots until translucent, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a large mixing bowl; add ricotta, goat cheese, lemon zest, tarragon, parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.

  • Divide dough into three pieces. Using a pasta machine, roll out dough until very thin. Use as little extra flour as possible to keep from sticking. Place sheet on a lightly floured surface; use a pastry wheel to cut sheet into 4-inch squares. Place a heaping tablespoon of filling in center of each square. Brush edges lightly with water. Fold into a triangle; seal, eliminating any air inside. Pull the two corners on the folded side together; attach with a little water. Brush off excess flour with a dry brush.

  • Place tortelloni on a tray generously dusted with semolina; chill, covered tightly with plastic wrap, until ready to use.
