HAM & CHEESE TORTELLINI

Looking for another easy one-pan dinner for your busy week?

This Ham & Cheese Tortellini takes your tortellini dinner to a whole new level! And this dinner takes less than 20 minutes to prepare!

One thing I love about tortellini is that you can pick up several packages and freeze what you don’t use. That way you can grab a package out of the freezer in the morning and make this recipe in the evening.

And did I mention how easy it is!

Here’s the recipe;

HAM & CHEESE TORTELLINI

Shopping List:

  • 1-2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1/2 White Onion, minced
  • 1/2 package Deli Ham, chopped
  • Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 large package Cheese Tortellini, thawed
  • 3/4 cup Chicken Stock
  • 1/3 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 cup Shredded Mozzarella & Provolone Cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Parsley, chopped

Instructions:

  • In a large skillet, cook the onions in the olive oil until soft (about 3 minutes)
  • Add the ham and cook until crispy (about 5 minutes) – season with black pepper
  • Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds
  • Add the tortellini and combine with the mixture
  • Pour in the chicken stock, cover and simmer for 6 minutes on a low temperature
  • Add heavy cream, shredded cheese, and parmesan cheese and stir until creamy
  • Top with parsley and serve

If you want a veggie dish, you can add peas or broccoli instead of the ham. Either way, it’s extremely creamy and really delicious!
