Pumpkin tortellini, for take-away

latertater Nov 30, 2007 03:58 AM

Could anyone make a recommendation for pumpkin tortellini in Boston or Saugus / North Shore area? For takeout, or frozen. Thanks!

    While not really north - i had great butternut sqash ravioli from russos, bought on Saturday, ate on Sunday. I know that they buy them from someone local... I think i paid $6.49 / lb. They were great! Squash, pumpkin, in the same family!

      Dino's, corner of Salem and Prince, North End for take-out. Also, I'd bet ya that Monica's Mercado would have a batch made for you if you called them (they're basically across the street from Dino's).

        I am almost positive I've seen pumpkin tortellini at Capone's in Union Square Somerville.

          Nope - according their web page they have pumpkin ravioli, as well as sweet potato gnocchi, but neither of those fillings in tortellini/tortelloni:

            Giacomo's in the South End has pumpkin tortellini. They do takeout.

              Well if you are willing to have pumpkin ravioli, i can vouch for the ones from Capone. They are tasty, but small (not much more than 1 inch square), which would likely factor into your presenation.

                Dave's ravioli, including the pumpkin and smoked mozzarella which we had for dinner last night, are much better than Capone's. If you're coming in to town to get them, you might as well get the best. Dave's also makes tortellini, but I've only seen them frozen. Call and ask if they have pumpkin/squash or if they'd be willing to make it. They're wicked nice.

                  I second the pumpkin and smoked mozzarella which I also had for dinner over the weekend.

            I don't know if they have it but the two places I'd call if I were you are Spinelli's and J. Pace & Son.

              Would pumpkin ravioli work? You could ask if they have tortellini at Dave's in Davis Sq., Somerville: http://www.davesfreshpasta.com/pasta....

                Won't Dave's also do custom shapes? So maybe they could do a special order of pumpkin tortellini...

                  According to the Dave's e-newsletter that I got today, they are offering roasted butternut tortellini for the holiday season, $11.95 a pound.
