Tortellini with Goat Cheese

Bring 6 quarts water to boil and add 2 tablespoons salt.
In a large mixing bowl, mash goat cheese until soft. Add eggs and nutmeg, stir well. Using a pasta roller, roll out pasta to thinnest setting and then cut sheets into 2-inch squares. 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.
