I had a bag of frozen Tortellini that kept falling out at me, every time I opened my freezer door...so, I decided to finally do something with it, and this is what I came up with...the family loves it's creaminess from the eggs and heavy cream...not for the weight cautious folks...that includes me...I tasted a tortellini just to make sure it was post worthy...lol! It was definitely that and more...enjoy!

Ingredients

1 - 19 oz
package, frozen tortellini - i used rosetto / cooked per package directions
8 slice
thick bacon , cooked and broke into pieces - reserve about 2 tablespoons grease
2 Tbsp
bacon grease
3 large clove
garlic, minced
1
sweet onion, chopped
2 c
heavy cream
2 1/4 Tbsp
ap flour
2 tsp
salt - sounds like a lot, but will need it
1 tsp
pepper
3
eggs, beaten
1/2 c
shredded, parmesan cheese
3
green onions chopped tops and all
1 Tbsp
parsley flakes

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Have your pasta cooking at the same time you are making your sauce, so it's not cold when you go to add to the cream sauce.
2
Cook your bacon, drain.
3
In a large skillet, I use my wok - saute onions in 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease reserved, until translucent, add the garlic and continue cooking for about 1 more minute.
4
In a small bowl, whisk the cream with the flour, making sure there are no lumps. Whisk in the pepper and salt.
5
In a small bowl whisk the eggs. Set aside.
6
When onions and garlic are finished sauteing; Add the cream mixture. Bring to a slow boil and cook just until thickened, about 1 minute.
7
Stir a small amount of hot cream into the eggs, to temper... return the egg mixture to the pan and stir constantly. Bring to a slow boil, cook and stir a couple more minutes.
8
Drain pasta.
9
Add the parsley, 3/4 of bacon, 3/4 of green onions, Parmesan cheese and drained tortellini.
10
Heat through and serve immediately. I top each serving with the left over bacon, green onions and a sprinkle of Parmesan.

Notes: This sauce could be used with any pasta.


Enjoy!
