A stuffed pasta made in several different shapes, which may be square like ravioli, half circle-shaped like anolini, or twisted into a rounded form to appear like the shape of a small hat similar to cappelletti. Typically, the inner filling is formed into a small ball shape and placed on a 2 inch circle or rectangle of pasta. The pasta is then folded in half to form a half circle or a square. Or, it can also be formed into a thin rectangle that is sealed on the edges by hand and folded around a finger to create a small hat shape. If not available substitute pansotti, ravioli or cappelletti. Totrelli may also be referred to as anolini pasta.
Tortelli is often filled with pumpkin (zucca), crushed sweet cookies, and parmesan cheese to create a common dish known as Tortelli con Zucca that is topped with butter and sage sauce topped with grated parmesan.
