Believe it when they say 2 hours, 20 min hands-on time, not to mention using every pot and pan plus food processor! The tortelli looked cute and tasted good but somewhat bland. The sauce could also use something to spice it up. I used 1 egg instead of 2 egg yolks which was fine. Could be an impressive first course; I also like that the recipe makes a lot and can be made ahead and frozen but not sure it was worth the time and effort.

Delicious! Made this last night and followed the recipe exactly. The flavors were fabulous. This dish is time consuming, but worth it. I made the sauce & filling early in the day & put both in the refrigerator. I heated up the sauce close to serving time. I would call the sauce an arrabiata style, and you could use any light sauce with this recipe. I would not recommend a meat sauce because it would overpower the spinach/chicken filling. The filling was so good that I would consider using it in other filled pastas. My teens helped with the pasta making. We have a Marcato Atlas machine and went down the #7 thin sheets. This gave us the yield the recipe stated and the tortelli were light & yummy. We all had 8 to 10 tortelli as a main course (hungry family of 5 with 3 teens). I would say 5 or 6 tortelli would be a good first course.
