|Use a pizza cutter to make squares for the tortelli.|
|Add the cheese filling to a zip lock bag. Pipe filling onto each of the squares.|
|Please ignore a) how jet lagged I am b) how hungover I am and c) my ridiculous inappropriate cooking class attire. It was literally the first thing i pulled out of my suitcase. Frightening.|
