These aren’t your ordinary tortellini, they’re better! Filled with divine scallop, they’ll leave you wanting more.



200g plain flour

115g Durum wheat flour

3 Eggs

Teaspoon salt

Tablespoon olive oil


Place all ingredients into a food processor. Blitz until it becomes a fine crumb. Tip onto a lightly floured bench and kneed to form a ball. Wrap in clingfilm and refrigerate for 30mins.  

When the time comes to fill the pasta, roll it out using a pasta roller to setting number 7. Cut into 10cm rounds using a biscuit cutter. Place the scallop filling (approximately 1 tablespoon) into the centre of the round. To seal, lightly whisk a egg and run a light coating of the mixture around the circle, fold an press down to form a ½ circle. Fold the corners together and use more of the egg mix to seal.

Cook in a pot of boiling water for approximately 7 minutes.

Scallop filling


300g finely chopped scallops

150g finely chopped white fish

1 egg white

75ml cream

Tablespoon chopped chives

1 crushed clove garlic

Blizt white fish & egg white in a food processor until they form a paste. Add cream and pulse until it forms a mousse. Fold mousse and chopped scallops together. Add chives & garlic, and season with salt & pepper. 



2 tablespoons butter

2 heads of cauliflower chopped into small florets
