Skillet Tortellini with Mushroom Cream Sauce
The babies are coming the babies are coming! Actually – strike that, they are here! Exciting (and busy) times here in our household, and I LOVE a good skillet meal for a quick weeknight dinner.
First melt some butter in a medium stock pot, and toss in some sliced mushrooms.
Let the mushrooms get nice and brown, and then add in the rest of the sauce ingredients and the tortellini. Let it simmer over low heat, stirring frequently, until the tortellini is done. Add in copious amounts of reggiano, and enjoy.
I must throw out some major props to KitchenIQ! They sent me a box of goodies the other week, and this parmesan grater is by far my favorite. Its a super fine grater and perfect for Parmigiano Reggiano which typical graters don’t do very well on.
This would also be a great dish for that crazy back to school time. The entire month of September is usually a big blur to me as I get everyone back onto routine bedtimes, getting up early, and school runs. This year it’ll be even crazier since I’ll be working and wrangling 3 babies as well as tackling the school runs.
