I have a thing for the word TORTELLINI.
Whenever I say it I just have to say it in my best Italian accent (which is horrendous I do have to say).
But no matter how bad my Italian accent is, and how un-authentic (probably not a real word) this dish is to Italy, it is delicious.
And perfect for summer.
