Cheese Tortellini in Garlic Alfredo Sauce

This is the easiest diner I ever made and still enjoyed it. I am not that much in to red tomato based sauce, like only in some kind of dishes only. I have tortellini sitting in freezer since so long and never had chance to take it out and make a dish. One fine day that time arrived , made this, pizza dip and big bowl full of salad and finished the bottle of Mascato wine. Will try to do it again and again.

Ingredients :

1 bag of frozen cheese tortellini
choice of vegetables ( I had carrot, artichokes, onion, red pepper)
2 1/2 cup heavy cream
6 Garlic cloves finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
4 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 cups grated parmesan
2 tsp. grated lemon zest
Pinch of freshly ground nutmeg
salt and freshly ground white  pepper or white pepper powder


Boil tortellini as per package directions and keep it aside.

Stir 2 cups of the cream and the lemon juice, garlic in a heavy large skillet to blend.

Add the butter , vegetables and cook over medium heat just until the butter melts, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Add the pasta and toss.

Add the remaining 1/2 cup of cream, and Parmesan to the cream sauce in the skillet on very low heat.
Add the lemon zest, nutmeg, salt, and white pepper.
Toss the pasta mixture over low heat until the sauce thickens slightly, about 1 minute.
Enjoy your quick diner with side of salad or bread or wine.
