Tortellini Alfredo with Cheese Tortellini
September 23, 2009

So easy to make - it reminds me of something the Olive Garden had years ago. I sauteed the onion in 1/2 c. of butter along with some minced garlic then added the mushrooms until they were soft. I then added the peas and ham. In a separate bowl I mixed 1 c. of heavy cream and 3/4 c. of half and half with 1 tbsp. of cornstarch and added that to the mix along with 1/2 tsp. of salt and some cracked black pepper. I let that simmer and then added 1 c. shredded parmesan cheese vs. grated for better flavor. I poured this over the tortellini vs. mixing it in - this way the tortellini doesn't get mushy. Very simple and quick but looks and tastes like you spent hours.
