Balanzoni is a pasta tipica of Bologna, a green tortellini filled with mortadella. We’ve filled ours with a mortadella mousse garnished with ground fava beans, mint and fried pistachio. Usually you’d see this with a brown butter and sage sauce, but we’ve paired our Balanzoni with a simple sauce of melted spring leeks, adding a seasonal element to the tradition. The name Balanzoni is based on an Italian commedia dell’arte (theater), the character typically being of great wealth, loud, and of grand physical stature — we believe this dish lives up to the lore.
