Servings: 6 people
  • 20- ounce three cheese tortellini or 20-ounce sweet Italian sausage tortellini you can find these in the refrigerator section
  • 6- ounce package finely shredded Italian Parmesan cheese blend or finely shredded Parmesan cheese works just as well
  • 10- ounce package of frozen petite peas uncooked
  • Lawry's Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  1. Boil a large pot water and boil the tortellini as directed on the package. The package I buy states boil 7-9 minutes. Drain most of the water, but not all (it keeps the pasta moist) and add the peas, olive oil, Lawry's salt, pepper, garlic powder. Stir the mixture and add the cheese to melt. This is now one of our family's favorite dishes. Serve hot and enjoy your meal.
