If you can’t get sheep’s milk ricotta, cow’s milk ricotta is fine. Just make sure it’s firm ricotta. If it’s soft or watery, leave it to drain in a sieve lined with muslin or a clean J-Cloth over a bowl for a few hours.
Tortelli are best eaten fresh, but you can freeze them. Here’s how: blanch in boiling, salted water with a splash of olive oil for 10 seconds. Remove, drain on a damp tea towel, then lay flat on a sheet of foil. Fold up well, put in plastic freezer bags and freeze. To cook, unwrap and boil the tortelli from frozen, as in the recipe.
