Taurtellini

Tortellini originated from the Bologna region of Italy and the story is that the goddess Venus had a night on the town and had to stay in an inn of the mortal world.  The innkeeper couldn’t resist the temptation to see the goddess of beauty and love so he snuck a peek through the keyhole.  All he could see was her belly button and to immortalize what he had seen, he rushed to the kitchen and created the tortellini.  To use homemade tortellini, use my recipe.  You can also purchase premade tortellini in the frozen section of your grocery.

I decided to bring together the beef and cream sauce because most generally people save cream sauces for poultry and I enjoyed mixing it up a bit with beef or sausage.  This dish is a very simple and is very rich and flavourful.  The key is slow cooking the beef so that it stays tender and moist, like you would expect in a beef stew.  I try to pick beef that has minimal marbling to reduce the chewiness.
