"Typical Italian food" does not exist
It is exactly that, what has happened to pasta with Bolognese sauce: they became world-famous. And "typical". It is less known that, for example, on the tagliatelle al ragù alla Bolognese, each family is said to have a different recipe. Maybe it's just an exaggerated legend. But it proves that there is nothing like "typical Italian food". Only the mentioned tortellini are filled with meat in Modena, a little further in Ferrara with pumpkin, in Parma and Piacenza with ricotta and herbs. The shape and size of the anollini depends on whether we are closer to Parma, where they are jokingly called life jackets, or closer to Piacenza, where they are crescent-shaped. Some use egg dough, some use green spinach dough, black cuttlefish dough or corn dough. In the south of the country the cuisine contains more vegetables, in the north more meat. And if we ended by naming only a few types of pasta like Fagiolini, Sachchetti, Fellini, Garganelli and Foglie, you might not even notice that we hid, as a test of attention, the name of director Federico Fellini in there, which, of course, does not belong there.
