Knead the eggs with the flour, a drizzle of oil and salt, obtaining a smooth sheet of dough. Envelop it in plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

The filling:

Clean the artichokes by immersing them in water and lemon, cut into slices not too thin, then sauté them in a pan for 10 minutes with garlic, thyme and olive oil. Once they have softened, let them cool and blend with ricotta cheese, grated Asiago DOP, salt, pepper and zest of ½ a lemon, thus obtaining a fairly sustained cream. Put the cream in a pastry bag and leave to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.


Melt the butter in a pan, add the flour and beat well with the whisk until you obtain a smooth roux. Add the milk, continue mixing and, when the béchamel is about to thicken, add the grated Asiago DOP. Continue to mix until you obtain a smooth cream and add to taste nutmeg and black pepper.


Roll out the pastry, thin but not too much, and create small mounds of filling with the pastry bag. Close the tortelli, boil them and then sauté them in a pan with butter and sage. Clean the artichokes and cut them into thin slices. Bread them quickly and delicately with a little semolina and fry them in boiling oil. At the base of a bowl, put a few tablespoons of hot fondue, the fried tortellini and artichoke slices.
