This is a very quick restaurant version of tortellini Alfredo. You can use a small canned ham, spam, bacon, or even leftover ham. You can also add a can of mushrooms, too. Served with a salad and garlic bread. It's great! I'm asked to make this all the time by my kids and their friends.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain and return to the pot.

  • Mix in peas, ham, cream, and Parmesan cheese and simmer over medium heat until sauce thickens, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
