Creamy Tortellini

 Creamy Tortellini
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.
6-8 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 25 min.


  • 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
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Cook tortellini according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a
  • large skillet, saute garlic in oil until tender, about 1 minute.
  • Combine soup mix and cream; stir into skillet.
  • Drain tortellini; add to cream mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat;
  • simmer, uncovered, for 4-5 minutes or until heated through, stirring
  • occasionally.
