Creamy Spinach Mushroom Tortellini:
A quick not to share with you guys that this is a repost! Yes, one of our most popular recipes of 2018 and we decided to repost it as new. There have been so many new faces around here over the last two years, it seemed like the best thing to do! To make this tortellini recipe you will start with boiling your water and cooking the pasta according to package directions. I used refrigerated tortellini, but, frozen is fine as well! While the pasta is cooking, you will saute your onions, garlic, and mushrooms for about 5 minutes until they're tender. We absolutely love a good creamy pasta dish for a filling and simple weeknight dinner at our house! Especially when they're easy!
By this point you can drain your tortellini and set aside. Then, season the vegetables and add the spinach into the pan. You will stir the spinach around constantly for 2-3 minutes until it is wilted.
Next, turn your heat to low and add the heavy cream to the pan. Then, stir in the parmesan until melted and add the pasta.
Tortellini is a pasta that comes in the shape of a ring. Typically it is stuffed with some kind of cheese or meat mixture. For this recipe, I always use cheese tortellini. However, you can use the beef, chicken, or cheese version, they're all great!
What Sauce Goes with Tortellini?
This recipe has it's own simple cream sauce that is simply amazing, close to an Alfredo! Any kind of sauce is generally great with tortellini, everything from Homemade Pesto to Easy Homemade Alfredo Sauce! For this recipe, the simple spices and cream sauce compliment the cheese filled pasta really well.
