Creamy Tortellini Recipe

An envelope of vegetable soup mix lends flavor to the simple cream sauce that coats this rich pasta entree. I like to garnish it with additional mozzarella cheese and parsley.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 envelope vegetable soup mix
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

"This had a very odd flavor, I think it was from the soup mix. I would not make again."
