February 13th is National Tortellini day.
Like other food holidays, the exact origin of the day is unknown.
Tortellini (tor-teh-LEE-nee) is a small, bite-sized pasta ring stuffed with cheese and/or meat (pork, prosciutto.) It originated in Italy, during the 16th century. It is a world-wide favorite pasta that is used as both a main course with a variety of sauces and in a cream or broth-based soup.
