Polenta & Gorgonzola Tortelloni with Hazelnut Butter

INGREDIENTS for 4 people

400 gr “00” flour

100 gr durum wheat flour

5 eggs

Extra-virgin olive oil


150 gr Gorgonzola Dolce Baruffaldi

200 gr polenta

20 gr butter

20 gr ground hazelnuts

1 egg yolk

1 leek

1 sprig rosemary

extra-virgin olive oil

Parmesan cheese


Prepare the polenta and leave to cool.
Mix the flours on a pastry board and make a well in the centre, then break the eggs into it.
Add the salt and knead into a dough with your hands until soft and smooth.
In a small saucepan, roast the leek and the rosemary in some oil.
Filter them and blend them with the polenta, the parmesan cheese and 1 yolk until you have a soft, smooth dough.
Flatten the dough into two separate sheets and place small portions of filling on one of them, using a pastry bag if helpful.
Cover with the other sheet and cut out the Tortelloni.
Melt some butter in a pan and add most of the ground hazelnuts.
Cook the Tortelloni in abundant salted water, drain them and add the hazelnut butter.
Sprinkle with the remaining ground hazelnuts and serve immediately.
