I’m always looking for simple dinner ideas that the whole family will love, and always have good luck with pasta recipes. From pasta to spaghetti, I like to add one of these pasta recipes to my weekly menu plan because they are usually simple and all my kids will eat it.
This recipe is inspired by the creamy macaroni recipe that we make at least once a month. I love tortellini and tried to make my kids love it, so I decided to use tortellini noodles in this recipe and it turned out to be very popular!
This cheese-garlic pasta is now a new dinner recipe that kids love! Since there are too many types of tortillas (meat stuffed, cheese stuffed, etc.), I hope we can try other versions too.
How to make
Tortellini. A good rule of thumb for the ratio of water to tortellini is to add 1 quart of water for every 4 ounces of pasta. Knowing this, you will boil the water and season it with salt (if you like). Stir the tortellini gently and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until the noodles are soft. Drain and set aside until the sauce is ready.
Sauce. Just melt the butter in a pan, add garlic, fry for one minute, then add flour, and cook for another minute. Add the milk and chicken broth and stir until it boils and thickens. Add the Parmesan cheese, stir until the cheese is completely melted, and voila!
Combine and serve. Add your pasta (cheese tortellini in this example) to the sauce, season with a little salt and pepper, and sprinkle with some fresh parsley. That’s it! The easiest pasta recipe, ready in 20 minutes!
Recipe reminder + storage information
you can use it Dried tortellini, Or any type of pasta. But we definitely prefer the taste of fresh cheese tortellini (and it cooks faster)!
Some of our Favorite vegetable Adding to this dish includes chopped asparagus, broccoli, zucchini and peppers. When you add pasta to the recipe, just add the already steamed vegetables.
Most grocery stores have Fresh tortellini, But sometimes it can be difficult to find. It will not be on the same island as dry pasta. I usually see it near frozen meats and cheeses. 😉
Put the remaining tortellini in an airtight container, then Shop It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days. Reheat In the microwave or by reheating on the stove. You may need to add a little broth to dilute the sauce.
