You can use a jar of prepared Alfredo sauce to save time, or use our homemade Alfredo sauce with just butter, cream, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and a little nutmeg. If fresh vegetables are in season, this is a good way to use them - just steam and add to the pasta instead of frozen vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz frozen mixed vegetables of your choice, prepared and kept warm
  • 1/2 recipe homemade Alfredo sauce, or a jar of prepared sauce
  • 16 oz cheese tortellini, dry, fresh, or frozen
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (for garnish)

Instructions

  • Prepare tortellini according to package directions. While pasta cooks heat Alfredo sauce and gently fold in vegetables. When heated through, add sauce and vegetable mixture to tortellini and garnish with Parmesan cheese.
