What Is Tortellini al Forno?

From the Blogger: "If you have never tried it, tortellini al forno is cheese and prosciutto-filled tortellini in a parmesan cream sauce, topped with crumbled bacon."

Tortellini is also known as "cappelletti" in some regions. The noodles are ring-like in appearance and almost resemble belly buttons, giving them the nickname "ombelico." You can stuff these noodles with meat like pork loin and prosciutto or simply fill them with cheese.

"Al forno" means "baked" in Italian, so tortellini al forno is typically an oven recipe. However, this version of tortellini al forno from Olive Garden is simplified by using a stove to cook the noodles. It's still just as tasty as the original recipe, so be sure to give it a try!
