Category, DifficultyBeginnerPrep Time1 minCook Time3 minsTotal Time4 minsYields1 Serving

Nduja is synonymous with the region of Calabria. This region of Italy is famous for enjoying the heat of spicy chilis and it should be no surprise that Nduja with its bright chili red colour originates in Calabria.  This spicy and rich sausage is a perfect filling for tortelloni.  When married with a rich red Pesto made from sun-dried tomatoes, a perfect combination emerges as the heat of the chilis is offset by the sweet and tangy pesto. A dash of parmesan and the dish is complete.
