This recipe is based loosely on a Taste of Home recipe. It's a great way to reinvent leftover ham! It's very quick and simple and uses mostly pantry ingredients.

Ingredients

1 pkg
cheese tortellini, 20 ounces or so
1/2 c
bell pepper, diced
1 c
broccoli florets
1/2 c
peas
1 1/2 c
ham, cubed

corn starch
1 Tbsp

4 Tbsp
grated fresh parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

butter

Step-By-Step

1Cook tortellini according to directions on package. Drain and set aside.
2Melt butter over medium heat in a heavy skillet. Saute bell pepper and broccoli until slightly tender. Add ham and garlic, saute until heated through. (I let the ham get a little crispy, which was delicious)
3Combine broth, cornstarch, and pesto and add to skillet. Bring to boil and cook until thickened.
4Add milk or cream, tortellini, peas, and half of the cheese. Toss well. Salt and pepper to taste.
5Sprinkle with remaining cheese and serve.
