Spreadable cream cheese makes a quick and creamy Alfredo sauce. From Kraft Foods.
- 2 (9 ounce) packages cheese tortellini, uncooked
- 1⁄2 cup cream cheese spread (1/2 of 8-oz. tub)
- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 2 cups frozen peas
- 2 cups chopped ham
- Cook tortellini as directed on package; drain and set aside.
- In a saucepan over medium-low heat, combine cream cheese spread, milk and Parmesan cheese; mix well.
- Stir in peas and tortellini.
- Cover and cook on medium-low heat 5 minutes or until sauce is thick enough to coat tortellini, stirring occasionally.
- Stir in ham; cook until heated through.
- Sprinkle with a dash of nutmeg, if desired.
- To reheat refrigerated leftovers, first stir in a little milk to keep it creamy.
