WHAT IS THIS?
Tortellini filled with ricotta and borage. Borage? I know. I hadn’t heard of it either. It’s an herb that’s also known as starflower. This preparation is common to Northern Italy and man is it good. Slightly floral, mostly delicious and served in a creamy burrata cheese sauce, this tortellini is good enough to have you popping them like Valium after knee surgery.
