  1. As a kid, I used to help my grandfather make the tortellini by hand. Cutting and rolling, those were great days. Your recipe looks typically fantastic. Just the right mix of ingredients.

      • I’d like to get some – we used to get them before in the refrigerated section of the store, but now they have the refrigerated section in the middle of the pasta and pasta sauces aisle.

      • Yes I do – I shopped at a small store named Farmer Jacks for many years. It was the size of a regular Kroger. They closed suddenly in 2006 and I started going to Meijer which is huge like a Walmart. It was before I began my walking regimen and I’d go on a weekend, spending hours looking for a few items, going from one side of the store to the other. Meijer remodeled their store from May to November last year. By the time I get back there (last I was there was in November), I’ll never remember where things are.
