I am quite a fan of Italian food and I've always had this doubt: what is the difference between ravioli and capelleti?

@Carmen816,
The word cappelletti means “little hats” which is what this pasta should resemble; they're round, from Modena, stuffed with meat, and traditionally served in broth.

Ravioli are claimed to come from either Genoa or Cremona, depending on who you believe, and are square in shape and are traditionally stuffed with beef or cheese.

@contrex,
What's the difference between tortellini and cappelletti then? Your image of cappelletti looks exactly like tortellini.

@tsarstepan,
Quote:
The difference between cappelletti, from Modena, and tortellini, from Bologna, lies in the stuffing: the shape is the same.

According to the Modenesi, cappelletti are shaped like hats. Giuseppe Cerri, whom the Bolognesi credit with the happy invention of the tortellino, instead claimed to have been inspired by a vision of Venus’s navel.

@ehBeth,
Thanks for the clear answer ehBeth.

I'll leave eating hats to Charlie Chaplin and/or other renown hobos of the silent era.

@tsarstepan,
Actually, they look more like bonnets. or even in the shape of an octopus.
