For the Pasta

4, scrape mousse into a stainless steel bowl and refrigerate
5, fold through the rest of the cream and refrigerate once again

To make tortellini

1, roll out half your pasta in a pasta machine, going through each setting twice, once you reach the second to last cut out circles roughly the size of a domestic mug,
2, lay in-between Clingfilm and refrigerate
3, roll each pasta circle through the last setting in the machine and put a teaspoon of mix just off centre in each circle and fold over (towards you) the pasta to make a little half moon
4, press down well and re cut to neaten up the edge
5, bring bottom right edge around your finger until it touches the inside of the pasta and squeeze together to seal it,

For the Soup;

1, add everything into a thick bottom pan and simmer for 20 minutes only (use a timer)
