Sorrentinos are a type of Argentine filled pasta, like ravioli, but larger and more circular. The dough is made with flour and eggs, and they have a variety of fillings that can combine cheese, ham, vegetables or nuts.[1][2]

History

There are several versions on the origin of this pasta. The first states that the sorrentinos were born in Sorrento (Italy) in 1958 in a restaurant called Buon Cibo, where a chef prepared pasta filled with cooked ham, mozzarella and provolone.[3] However, the sorrentinos do not exist in Italy with this name.[4] Other theories indicate that they were created in the city of Mar del Plata by an Italian immigrant from Sorrento, or by his son Cayetano Persico,[3] while other sources state that they originated in Buenos Aires, in a place called Sorrento or Sorrentino.[1][2][5]
