I had a bag of frozen Tortellini that kept falling out at me, every time I opened my freezer, 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! It was definitely that and more...enjoy!

How To Make cass's delicious cheese tortellini alfredo

  • 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!
