Pear and Ricotta Filled Fagottini

Ricotta and Pear Filled Pasta Sacks

Fagottini (little pasta sacks) are a charming variation to more common types of filled pasta, and make a beautiful presentation. Ricotta cheese and pears are a marriage made in heaven. I always find myself eating half the filling before I’ve finished the recipe. It’s delicious!
