Tortellini Alfredo

Refrigerated tortellini, ham, mushrooms and peas are treated to a mild homemade Alfredo sauce in this fast fix Chris Snyder shares. "When we're having company, I prepare this dinner shortly before guests arrive, put it in a casserole dish and keep it warm in the oven," notes the Boulder, Colorado reader.

    I left out the ham (don't like it) and mushrooms (didn't have any on hand) and it still tasted fabulous. Definitely going to add the mushrooms next time though.

    This was delicious and super easy! I omitted the mushrooms and used a whole small onion instead, and it worked well!
