Mixed Cheese and Basil Tortellini Tomato Sauce
* It is always a good idea to add one binding cheese such as ricotta to your mixture as this helps to hold it all together.
Some of the worst tortellini that I have tried have been mixed cheese ones. I must admit they've always been from supermarkets or horrible delis and they've been filled with leftover or really rubbery cheap cheese. This tortellini recipe is absolutely superb because you choose and balance the cheeses to your own taste. Choose different mixtures strong cheeses creamy cheeses a combination that you enjoy eating. Remember when cheese cooks it melts and some cheeses such as fontina have better melting qualities. The fresh tomato sauce is great because as well as giving a lot of flavour it also cuts through the fattiness of the cheese.
