What about the remaining tortellini?

Tips for making dough
Since each type of flour behaves differently, the amount of water and oil can be slightly increased. But the dough should not be runny and should not be very stiff (where it could crumble into fragments). The finished dough should not stick to your hands. It should be malleable and pleasant to sculpt.
Vegetarian tortellini is not only festively beautiful, but also a hearty, nutritious dish. There are a lot of recipes for homemade vegetarian tortellini with different fillings. Today, we want to offer you a recipe for making tortellini with mozzarella and green onions.
First prepare the filling. Grate the mozzarella. Finely chop the green onion. Combine and mix well. Cover and set aside.
To prepare the dough, pour warm water into a container, add salt and oil and mix gently. Then gradually pour in the flour and stir with a spoon. When the dough reaches a thick consistency, put it on a flour-sprinkled surface and continue adding flour, kneading with your hands, until it is smooth and elastic.
Roll out the dough as thin as possible with a rolling pin, then cut with a knife into small squares. In the center of each square, place a teaspoon of the filling. Sculpt the tortellini by folding the square diagonally, then pinch the edges and connect the ends, as though making dumplings.
Put the prepared vegetarian tortellini on a flour-sprinkled wooden or glass cutting board.
Pour 4 ¼ cups of water into the pan, then add 1 bay leaf, 2 allspice berries, 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and a pinch of salt, and bring it to a boil. When the water boils, add some tortellini and gently stir with a spoon. At the beginning, they will lie on the bottom of the pan. Once the tortellini rise to the surface, cook them for another five minutes over medium heat.
Serve the tortellini, sprinkled with herbs, sesame seeds or grated parmesan cheese.
