Recipe Review: Tortellini with Ham and Peas

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.

Review: This was a 2/5 for me and a 3/5 for the Mr. He said he would have liked it much better if it had more sauce, so next time I will double the sauce if I make it again.
