GRUYERE CREAM TORTELLINI WITH EGGS ON TOP

This create this recipe one random weekend at home with whatever materials I had in the fridge! I used fresh tortellini (but you can do it with packaged), a Cretan gruyere brought from the island and a sausage from Mykonos. The dish taste like Greece but it could even be served in a New York restaurant!

For the cream gruyere I made a kind of sauce and “finished” the dish with gratinating few minutes in the oven.
