So authentic is it, that it was registered at the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Handicraft and Agriculture in Bologna by the 'Dotta Confraternita del Tortellino' and the local commitee of the 'Italian Cookery Academy' on December 7th 1974. ingredients 100g pork loin, 100g lean Parma ham, 100g real Bologna sausage (mortadella), 150g parmigiano reggiano cheese, 1 hen egg, a bit of nutmeg.
