Pumpkin and Cheese Tortellini
Knowing how to make your own pasta is a useful skill to have. You can roll it out with a rolling pin, but your life will be so much easier with a pasta roller. You can get ones that clamp to your worktop, or ones that attach to a mixer. The latter involves far less elbow grease.
Making my own tortellini was a fun, but time consuming exercise. The finished result was unsurpassable though. Definitely worth all the rolling, cutting, folding and pinching. My suggestion is make a large batch, put on your favourite playlist, and make a whole bunch. Uncooked, they freeze extremely well. How impressive would it be to be able to pull out a batch of your own tortellini at the next dinner you host? You could serve these with a cheese sauce, but they should be allowed to be centre stage so a simple butter and lemon sauce. Feel free to toss in some fresh sage leaves.
