Tortellini Alfredo

This Tortellini Alfredo recipe takes less than 30 minutes to make with sauce that's restaurant quality! It's easy to add broccoli or leftover chicken for a dinner that your family will love.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 20 oz. refrigerated Tortellini, *see notes

Alfredo Sauce

  • 6 Tablespoons butter, high quality
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups half and half
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated and at room temperature
  • ½ cup Romano cheese, grated and at room temperature
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, to garnish

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for one minute.
  • Whisk in the flour. Gradually add the half and half, whisking constantly.
  • Bring the sauce to a gentle boil, then reduce heat to low.
  • Slowly sprinkle in the cheeses, continuing to whisk. It will continue to thicken as it simmers.
  • Bring a pot of water to a boil and add the broccoli. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the tortellini and cook for 4 minutes. (Confirm cooking time on package.)
  • Drain the tortellini and broccoli and add to the Alfredo sauce, stir to combine.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve!

Notes

*I like to use Rana refrigerated 5-cheese Tortellini (any alternative filling option is also fine!) It only takes 4 minutes to cook and these instructions are based on that timeframe. If an alternative brand is used, refer to the package for cooking time. The broccoli takes 5-6 minutes to boil.

Any kind of pasta may be used as an alternative to Tortellini.

Alfredo sauce isn’t meant to be too thick, but if you prefer for it to thicken more, let it continue to simmer and reduce slightly prior to adding the tortellini.
