 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      Cups          soft goat cheese, preferably Coach Farm
    6                    scallions -- plus
    2                    scallions, thinly sliced
    2                    eggs
      1/2  Teaspoon      freshly grated nutmeg
      1/2  Cup           grated Parmigiano-Reggiano -- plus 1/4 C
    1      Recipe        basic pasta
    4      Cups          good chicken broth
 
 Bring 6 quarts water to boil and add 2 tablespoons salt.
 
 In a large mixing bowl, mash goat cheese until soft. Add scallions, eggs,
 nutmeg and cheese and stir well. Using a pasta roller, roll out pasta to
 thinnest setting and then cut sheets into 2-inch squares. Bring chicken
 stock to simmer in a 4-quart saucepan. Place 1 teaspoon goat cheese filling
 in the center of each 2-inch square. Fold opposite corners together to form
 a triangle. Press edges together firmly to seal. Bring opposite points of
 the triangle together and meld together with firm finger pressure. Continue
 until all pasta is done. Drop tortellini in boiling water and cook until
 tender, about 7 to 10 minutes. Drain well and drop into simmering chicken
 broth. Add remaining scallions and cheese, check for seasoning and serve
 immediately.
