Happy Tortillini Day!
Do you like cheese tortellini? Whats your favorite way to use it?
I'll buy it when its on sale or b1g1. I usually just heat it up and serve it over sauce...yum!
I love Tortellini with prosciutto and peas! Sometimes I cheat and use jarred Alfredo sauce. You can also use cooked, crumbled bacon instead of the prosciutto. My family loves it.
My MIL used to make it in a chicken broth, with fresh grated Parmesan cheese.
Love it, I make it with chicken, pasta sauce and garlic bread.
I make a tortellini salad with a sweet tomato (fresh) dressing. The tomatoes macerate (like you would strawberries) with sugar,seasonings oil (olive) and vinegar before tossed with the tortellini. It's my own copy cat version of one that was served in a Bistro.
I didn't even know it was tortellini day and I was planning on making it as it is meat-free and Ash Wednesday and all. My favorite recipe:
Quoting mylilprincesses:Never had it
If you like cheese ravioli-you should like cheese tortellini
I love adding it to soup also!
