Tri-color tortellini in a creamy aflredo-eqsue sauce with prosciutto, mushrooms and peas. Kind of like what they served at Green Mill and Pasta Factory.
What you’ll need:
1 lb frozen tri-color tortellini
1 Tbsp butter
1 oz prosciutto, sliced thin and chopped
4 oz fresh sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 tsp minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
1 cup heavy cream or half and half
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of grated nutmeg (optional)
Saute the prosciutto, mushrooms and peas in the butter over medium-high heat until mushrooms are cooked and prosciutto is browned. Cook tortellini according to package instructions. Add in garlic and salt and pepper. Cook for and additional 1-2 minutes. Add in cream. Bring to a simmer and stir in parmesan cheese. Remove from heat. Add in cooked tortellini and mix well. Serve and enjoy! Makes 2-4 servings.
