    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of salted water to boil over high heat. Stir in tortellini and cook until pasta is just al dente. Add peas to pot for final 30 seconds to 1 minute of cooking time. (I just defrost my peas or run some warm water over them). While the pasta is cooking in another small pan saute the onions and garlic in tablespoon of butter or oil till soft and set aside.
    2. 2
      Drain tortellini and peas in a colander and immediately return to pot. Stir in butter, cream, Parmesan, sauteed onions and garlic and the ham. Season with salt and pepper. Turn stove on to medium heat and cook tortellini mixture, stirring frequently, until butter has melted, ingredients are heated through and sauce has thickened slightly, about 2-4 minutes. Serve immediately.

      Very much enjoyed, I love tortellini and can't always find it, when I get the chance this is exactly the sort of recipe I look for to really enjoy this wonderful pasta! I made as per recipe, other than that I had much less ham than I had thought, so I took about 50 gr chopped sun-dried tomato and added that as well, which was very good. This was excellent, quick and delicious. Thank you Denise, for drawing my attention to this recipe, made for I Recommend tag game.

      Wow, thanks for sharing Mama Smurf! I couldn't have asked for an easier or tastier supper that used up some of my leftover ham! This was one of the fastest suppers I've made in a long time. I made as listed except I used 1/2 of a small onion and had to use frozen tortellini, but those were small changes. I'd recommend staging your ingredients before starting your tortellini cooking because once they are done (mine only took 3 minutes) things go pretty fast. I'd also recommend using good quality parmesan and plenty of garlic. Another bonus was all we needed to go with this was a quick salad. Our yield was closer to 4 servings, but we are big eaters, especially when it is so yummy! Thanks for a great "go to" recipe when I need a quick tasty supper!
