  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil; stir in tortellini and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the tortellini float to the top and the filling is hot, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and transfer to a serving bowl.

  3. Place peas in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave into warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Pour pumpkin sauce over pasta and top with peas.
