Tortellini or Belly Button

Tortellini is a kind of pasta; one of the most famous items from the Italian cuisine catalog. As the saying goes, Tortellini originated in the Emilia region of Italy. There is a legend related to the birth of this exquisite pasta. The Goddess of Love, Venus visited a tavern in the locality of Castelfranco Emilia. It is a small town situated between Modena and Bologna.

The keeper at the tavern was a malicious person, who had a habit of peeking through keyholes. A glimpse of the Goddess Venus’s belly amazed him. So, he went back to his kitchen and tried replicating the visual through a rolled-out egg pasta sheet. Tortellini, as a result, resembles the shape of a belly button.

Traditional Dish

Tortellini is still celebrated in the Castelfranco Emilia region by the natives. They dress up, go for parades and play enactments on a specific day.  Tortellini holds an emotional value for the natives. Preserving the long-gone history, generations commemorate the day when this uniquely shaped pasta was invented.

Pasta has been the staple food of many households for centuries. It holds a special value, in Italian people’s lives. Families have always passed this skill from time to time and it still survives. Men, women, kids – irrespective of gender and age have participated in the activity of making pasta. The tradition speaks of unity, bonding, and togetherness.
