Tortellini alla crema rosa


I went to Costco last week and while I was going through the rows looking for food samplers (yes, I love Costco for their food samplers, I can't say no to free food haha), something caught my eye: a 2kg package of Villa Ravioli 3-cheese tortellini...for only 7$! I couldn't pass on a deal like that! And what goes better with tortellini than sauce rosee? Yummm!

Tortellini alla crema rosa
Makes 6 servings

1 lbs dry cheese tortellini
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/3 cup mushrooms, minced
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 1/2 cups canned tomato sauce
2 teaspoons white sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream 35 %
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and pepper

1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add tortellini and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
2. In large saucepan, sauté onion and garlic in olive oil. Add Italian seasonings and cook until onions are tender. Stir in mushrooms. Cook until liquid evaporates.
3. Add wine, boil for 30 seconds and stir in tomato sauce. When sauce is hot, stir in cream and parmesan cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour over tortellini and toss. Serve with additional Canadian Parmesan cheese for sprinkling, if desired.


My boyfriend insisted that I post a picture of his manly dish on my blog. So there you go, a macho man's tortellini complete with 2 fat and juicy sausages. lol. (I ended up eating up pne of his sausage because it was too spicy. He's allergic to spicy food...or so he says haha).

On the pictures, I used vietnamese basil as garnish because I didn't have the italian kind on hand ;)
