Description

A version of my regular pasta primavera, this one is even more decadent using cheese tortellini!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 whole Medium Onion, Finely Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 3 whole Carrots, Peeled And Diced
  • 1 cup Cauliflower, Broken Into Small Pieces
  • ¼ cups White Wine
  • ¼ cups Chicken Broth
  • ⅓ cups Heavy Cream
  • ½ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 8 whole Basil Leaves, Chopped (or Chiffonade)
  • ¾ cups Cooked Ham, Diced
  • 1 cup Frozen Peas
  • Extra Parmesan, For Serving
  • Extra Basil, For Serving
  • 1 pound Cheese Or Spinach Tortellini

Preparation

Cook tortellini a couple of minutes less than package directions call for. Drain and set aside.

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic and stir to cook for 1 minute. Add the carrots and cauliflower, stir, and cook 1 minute. Splash in wine and broth, then cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the liquid reduces a bit. Stir in cream and Parmesan and stir.

When the mixture is hot, stir in peas, ham, salt, and pepper. Allow them to heat up in the sauce. When the sauce is hot, stir in the tortellini. Check for seasonings, add more if needed, and serve with extra Parmesan and basil.

My whole family loved this recipe, even my picky nephew! The only problem I had was adding the cheese. It all went into a big clump. Next time I will just sprinkle it on top!
