Tremosine cheese tortelli are one of the most popular dishes from the Brescia side of Lake Garda.
The product that makes this delicious fresh pasta unique is the famous Formagella di Tremosine sul Garda, a delicate semi-hard cheese found in many traditional recipes.
The cheese tortelli are available in many pasta factories and artisan laboratories all over the Brescia side of the lake, cooked with different kinds of fillings also including stronger-flavoured cheeses such as aged Garda PDO.
For the perfect tortelli you have to use fresh free-range eggs, high quality flour and of course Tremosine sul Garda cheeses!
The pastry for your Tremosine sul Garda tortelli should be rolled out in a very thin sheet, then made completely by hand.
Traditional cheeses are the base of the filling, with some cow's milk ricotta of the Alto Garda Bresciano Park, which gives them a creamy taste.
Tremosine sul Garda tortelli can have the traditional medium-sized ravioli shape, or can be shaped like tortelloni, with a more rustic feel.
To enhance their flavour, you can sauté them in a pan with a generous amount of melted butter and sage. Simply delicious!
If you want to add a Mediterranean touch, they are perfect with olive oil and a simple fresh tomato sauce.
An quick tip to make your cheese tortelli special? To get a fresher taste, add a little lemon zest to the filling, or complete your dish with some grated black truffle from the Alto Garda Bresciano Park.
