This recipe comes from ULF sales rep, Lynn Christman. She says:

Lynn and the grandkids“Making this pasta has been a tradition in my family for generations. I’m of Swedish, German, and Italian descent and I come from a family of wonderful cooks. I remember my dad and I would make tortellini and fettuccine noodles from scratch every year, a tradition I continued with my son and my grandchildren. Every summer, the kids come over to my house and make gnocchi. The kids look forward to it as much as I do!

My dad passed away nine years ago, and I think of him every time I make my Christmas pasta. I think the tri-color tortellini is wonderfully festive for the holiday season, and sometimes I top the pasta with grilled shrimp or scallops.”
