Cheese and Peas Tortellini

{Meatless Monday- Cheese and Peas Tortellini} 
I am a huge fan of everything in this recipe, so the combination makes me happy! It is a super simple recipe that takes about 15 minutes.

{Ingredients} 
16 oz of cheese tortellini, thawed
2 Tablespoons of butter or margarine
3 Tablespoons of flour
1 clove of minced garlic
1 Cup of heavy cream (you can substitute with regular milk for a thinner sauce)
1 Cup of milk
Salt and pepper
1 15oz can of Sweet Peas (or a smaller can if your store carries them, you need 1 Cup)
1/2 Cup of grated Parmesan cheese

{Directions}
  • In a large sauce pan, prepare your tortellini according to the directions on the package
  • Meanwhile, in a medium sauce pan or deep skillet combine the butter and flour over medium heat; whisk together (Congratulations, you just made something called a roux!)


  • Add garlic
  • Slowly whisk in the heavy cream and milk


  • Add ΒΌ of a cup of Parmesan cheese to the sauce


  • Bring the sauce almost to a boil to allow it to thicken
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Add the pasta and toss to coat
  • Add the 1 cup of peas, or more, whatever you prefer (I like a ton of peas!)


Serve and garnish with parmesan, add garlic bread for an amazing dinner!

I love this recipe but Jason hates peas so I rarely make it, when I do I just pull some of it to the side before I add the peas.

Were not pea eaters either, except my youngest is always asking for it. I don't even know where she tried them before. This does look good though, nice ingredients! Funny name.
