Tortellini with Peas

Source: Everyday Food, September 2006

Ingredients

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving (optional)

Directions

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook tortellini about 2 minutes less than package instructions. Add peas; cook until pasta is al dente and peas are tender, 2 minutes more. Reserving 1 cup pasta water, drain. Set aside pasta and peas.

  2. Melt butter in pasta pot over medium-low heat. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Discard garlic.

  3. To pasta pot, add pasta and peas, Parmesan, and 3/4 cup reserved pasta water; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Add more pasta water, if necessary, to thin sauce. Serve, topped with additional Parmesan if desired.

    This was a very easy, quick and delicious dish! The family really liked it. I may try adding spiniach, shrimp or chicken next time.

    I made this when we had unexpected guests. Added some shrimp to it. It was a huge hit.
