  2. Add tortellini and continue to boil for 10-12 minutes, or until most of the broth is absorbed.
  3. Stir occasionally.
  4. Do not drain pasta!
  5. Add the half & half and simmer until most of the half & half is absorbed, about another 5 minutes.
  6. Stir frequently so the pasta doesn't scorch.

  8. Add the crab meat and stir gently to mix.
  9. Top with freshly ground pepper and shredded parmesan to taste.
