Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Doses for: 4 people
Tortelloni with lean meat of choice 400 g
Tomato sauce 300 g
Peanut oil q.s.
Dried oregano q.s.
Salt and pepper q.s.
Pour the tomato sauce into a saucepan and set aside. Heat the oven to 120°C and line 2 baking trays with kitchen paper.
Heat the oil in a saucepan and, when hot, fry the tortelloni, just a few at a time, until golden brown on all sides. Drain off excess oil on the paper lined tray and, when you are able to handle them, thread 3 of them onto a Love Skewer. As they become ready, transfer the skewers onto the other tray and keep them warm in the oven.
Heat the tomato sauce on very gentle heat and season with a spoonful of oregano and freshly ground pepper.
As soon as you have finished frying all the tortelloni and have assembled all the skewers, transfer the sauce to a bowl. Take out the skewers from the oven and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Arrange them around the bowl with the sauce and serve.
