  3. Stir cornstarch into cream, then whisk into broth. Bring to a simmer, whisking, then continue to simmer 1 minute. Add asparagus and simmer until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in cheese and tortellini and cook, gently stirring, until heated through.

Nice pasta dish. I used a combination of white and spinach cheese tortellini. Simple and very tasty. Thanks Realtor for a nice meal. Made for Cookbook Tag.

This was absolutely divine, as was the aroma while it was cooking. It was very easy to make, as well. The thyme was a great addition that made it very flavorful. I did end up adding some diced prosciuotto with the asparagus, in order to make a main dish out of this. I also had to substitute romano cheese, as I did not have enough parmesan. I used a 20-oz. package of herb-garlic tortellini, and there was plenty of sauce. I will be making this again. Made for Kittencal's Fall Mini Cook-a-Thon.
