Tortellini is a variety of ring-shaped pasta. They are typically stuffed with Parmesan cheese and occasionally with a mix of meat (pork loin, prosciutto crudo and mortadella). Originally from the Italian region of Emilia (in particular Bologna and Modena), they are usually served in broth, with cream, or sometimes with a ragù.
Packed, refrigerated or frozen tortellini and tortelloni (similar but larger) appear in many locations around the world, especially where Italian communities have a certain relief. Similar foods in other cultures include the Ukrainian Christmas food vushka (Ukrainian: вушка).
