What to expect
Tortelloni Ricotta and Spinach is a delectable Italian pasta dish that combines the rich, creamy flavors of ricotta cheese with the earthy taste of spinach, all wrapped in delicate pasta pockets. These large, stuffed pasta dumplings are a popular choice in Italian cuisine and are known for their delightful combination of textures and tastes. The filling typically consists of a mixture of fresh ricotta cheese and finely chopped spinach, seasoned with herbs and sometimes a hint of nutmeg or garlic for added depth of flavor. This savory filling is carefully encased in pasta dough, which is folded into a distinctive ring or navel shape, similar to tortellini but larger.
Class includes a glass of wine + you can bring your own bottle!🍷
About Chef Francesco Allegro
In the wheat fields of Canosa di Puglia, Italy, Francesco Allegro’s grandfather would harvest seeds to take home, grind, toast, then form into a toasted wheat troccoli. Today, Allegro makes that same troccoli, tossed with a fragrant combination of breadcrumbs, garlic, olive oil, and parsley, at Rossoblu. From a young age, he worked in the restaurant industry, but after high school, he pursued his two favorite things: music and pasta. On the side, Allegro taught Italian language classes, and in 2017, Chef Steve Samson was one of his students. Impressed by Allegro’s profound pasta skills, Samson recruited him to become the head sfoglino at his Bolognese-inspired restaurant, Rossoblu. Allegro now resides in L.A., where he hand-makes pasta for Rossoblu’s restaurant and market.
