Tortellini with mushroom cream sauce


I am not in the mood for writing anything today. That is why I will be short. The recipe I have chosen is a very tasty and fragrant one. It is that good that you will empty your plate at once. I bet on that. So let’s eat some

Tortellini with mushroom cream sauce

Time 18 min

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 185 g (6 oz) small mushrooms
  • 1 small lemon
  • 60 g (2 oz) butter ( you know already, 80-82 % fat)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 300 ml (9 1/2 fl oz) cream
  • black pepper
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 500 g (1 lb ) cooked tortellini, drained and kept warm

Method:

  • Slice the whole mushrooms finely. Grate the lemon rind finely. Melt the butter in a medium-sized pan and cook the mushrooms over medium heat for 30 seconds.
  • Add the garlic, cream, lemon rind, freshly ground black pepper and nutmeg. Stir over low heat for 1-2 minutes. Stir through the grated Parmesan cheese and cook gently for 3 minutes further.
  • Place the cooked tortellini in a warm serving dish. Add the sauce and stir gently to combine well. Serve immediately.

Bon Appetite!

This dish is perfect, easy and sooo delicious. I picked it up from the cookbook “Confident Cooking – Classic Essential Pasta”, 1996. In case you have it, don’t look here!😉
