Creamy Pumpkin Tortellini
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
The recipe is very rich tasting and the sauce is smooth and a beautiful color. However, after finishing the recipe, I tasted the sauce and realized that it was too bland for us. I added some blue cheese, which I crumbled and mixed into the torellini and sauce. I didn't measure, as I was in a hurry to get dinner on the table, but I would guess that for the half recipe that I made, it was 2-3 ounces. The cheese added just the contrast and piquancy that the sauce needed to make it delicious enough to be worth the calories. Next time, I might add some sautéed sage and gruyere or the blue cheese again but put it at the same time as the parmesan so it would melt or at least soften.
