Prepare the dough with flour, 2 eggs, water and salt. Shape it into a ball and let it rest. Boil the potatoes, then peel and mash them. Fry the finely chopped bacon, garlic and a little rosemary in 6 tablespoons of oil in a saucepan. When the garlic starts to brown, remove it and the rosemary. Add the bacon and oil to the potatoes resting in a tureen. Add 2 eggs, 4 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Mix well and leave to rest. Cut out discs of about 5 centimetres in diameter from the dough, put a teaspoon of filling in the centre, and close them by sealing the edge with a fork. Boil the tortelli in plenty of salted water and dress with a mushroom or meat sauce, preferably duck or game.
