Following a centuries-old Italian tradition, Barilla Three Cheese Tortellini are made from a time-honored recipe: a thin layer of rich, delicate pasta is filled with a perfectly balanced blend of three flavorful cheeses – sweet Swiss Emmenthal, light Ricotta, and nutty Grana Padano.
When the three distinctive flavors of Swiss Emmenthal, light Ricotta, and nutty Grana Padano are combined, they create a zesty, delightful taste sensation that captures all the dimensionality that is the hallmark of authentic Italian cooking. Available in regular and family size.
Traditionally, Tortellini often are cooked in a simple chicken broth to make the classic dish Tortellini in Brodo, or are paired with a light tomato sauce. Best when served warm, Tortellini and Tortelloni are perfect when paired simply with melted butter or extra virgin olive oil, topped by a generous sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Partnering them with one of Barilla Traditional Red Sauces allows you to create an authentic Italian meal in no time.
