Using store bought tortellini is the basis for this rich, creamy pasta dish that is very quick and easy to make. I’ve never made it for anyone who didn’t love it.
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 shallot, peeled & minced
- 1 garlic clove, peeled & minced
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1/4 lb. thinly sliced prosciutto, julienned
- 1/2 cup peas, fresh or frozen
- freshly ground black pepper
- pinch of nutmeg
- 12 oz. tortellini, fresh or frozen
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
- Place a large pot of water for the pasta on the stove to boil.
- In a large skillet, melt the butter and sweat the shallot and garlic over medium heat until just golden.
- Add the prosciutto, cream, peas and a pinch of grated nutmeg to the skillet and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
- While the pasta sauce reduces a little, cook the tortellini according to package directions, until just al dente. Drain the cooked tortellini and add it to the skillet.
- Over medium heat, give the pasta and sauce a good stir to coat the tortellini with sauce and to heat the pasta through.
- Serve on warm plates topped with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano and black pepper, to taste.
