Portobello Mushroom Tortellini

Good evening fellow bloggers. Tonight's entry comes to you a bit late today. I recently pinched my sciatic nerve (which just to note, is the nerve at the bottom of your spine). I neded some rest in order to feel better, but I'm back now! I bring to you a delicious tortellini recipe. If you are squeemish with mushrooms, this dish might not be for you, but if you love mushrooms, all the better. So, let's get started!

Portobello Mushroom Tortellini

You will need:

  • 1 pound cheese tortellini
  • 2 large portobello mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces Alfredo-style pasta sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. 
  2. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente, then drain. 
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the mushrooms by rinsing and thinly slicing the mushroom caps and discard the stems. 
  4. In a medium skillet over low heat, combine wine, parsley, garlic and mushrooms, making sure to stir frequently and saute for approximately 5 minutes or until mushrooms are cooked through. 
  5. Remove skillet from heat and slowly add the Alfredo sauce, stirring to blend and season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  6. Separate the hot pasta into four portions and spoon sauce over pasta. Garnish with cheese and serve immediately.
  7. Enjoy!

I hope you all have a great night and I will catch you on the flip side. Happy blogging my dear readers. You are all amazing! Good night!
