I got this recipe for Tortellini Italiano in my e-mail today. I am signed up to receive recipe e-mails from Kraft Foods and I get lots of yummy recipes from them and this looked like another great one!!
It is extremely easy and quick which is always a plus around here!
COOK pasta as directed on package.
MEANWHILE, cook and stir vegetables in large nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium heat 4 to 5 min. or until peppers are crisp-tender and peas are heated through. Add cooking creme; cook and stir 2 min.
DRAIN pasta. Add to skillet; stir.
I don’t have a big enough skillet, so after I cooked the veggies and creme in the skillet, I poured that into the pot that had the drained tortellini in it.
You can also use meat-filled tortellini to make it a little less cheesy. I actually wish I had used meat-filled tortellini instead of cheese.
I served it with a salad and mini croissant rolls.
It was good, but it was not as creamy as I like. Maybe I didn’t cook the cooking creme long enough with the veggies, but it was creamy when I poured it over the pasta. Maybe adding a little milk to thin it down would work. The creme just started to settle on the pasta and wasn’t as sauce-like as I was hoping for, but it was good.
It wasn’t one of my favorites, but I may try again with some modifications and maybe some of you guys will like it!
If you make it, let me know how you like it! I love comments!!
