This hearty tortellini is an easy fix for a weeknight meal.

 

 

Cook time:10 Minutes

Prep time:5 Minutes

Yield: 6 Servings

Cost Per Serving:$1.05

 

Tortellini with Ham and Peas

 

1 pound fresh or frozen cheese tortellini

1 cup frozen peas

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces

1/2 cup heavy cream

Salt and pepper

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

1/4 pound ham, chopped

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook tortellini until just al dente (do not overcook), as package label directs. Add peas to pot for last 30 seconds of cooking time.

Drain tortellini and peas and return to pot. Stir in butter, cream, salt, pepper, Parmesan and ham. Turn stove on to medium heat and cook, stirring, until ingredients are heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.

LOVE this! Sometimes I use prosciutto or bacon instead of ham. If using bacon, I recommend tossing it in at the end so that it stays crispy.

 My kids just don't care for stuffed pastas, I don't know why, but it looks like something I would love.

 Glad to hear someone else has made this. My family really likes it, and I like that it's so quick to fix.
