How to Make Tortellini With Peas And Prosciutto


  1. Cook tortellini in large pot of boiling salted water until barely tender, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Drain thoroughly.

  3. Return tortellini to pot. Add warm cream, Parmesan, peas and prosciutto. Simmer over low heat until tortellini are tender and sauce thickens, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Divide among four warm bowls and serve.
