Tortellini with Mushrooms

(2 Votes)
4 Min

Its obvious why this recipe was so requested when it was on Mr. Food's TV show. The rich, cheese-filled tortellini and the meaty portobello mushrooms work really well together. Yum, yum, yum!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (9-ounce) package fresh cheese-filled tortellini
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter, divided
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 portobello mushroom caps (about 6 ounces), sliced
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, divided (see Tip)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. Cook the tortellini according to the package directions; drain and return to the pot.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add the garlic, and saute for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and saute for 4 to 6 minutes, or until tender, stirring frequently.
  3. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons butter, the Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon basil, and the pepper to the skillet; mix well.
  4. Serve the tortellini topped with the sauteed mushrooms and sprinkled with the remaining 1 tablespoon basil. 
  • Time-Saving Tip: Let kitchen scissors save you work and time...simply snip the fresh basil for this recipe (and other herbs for other recipes) instead of chopping them.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made this with pepperidge farm puff pastry sheets.... and it tastes like a meat filled toaster strudel

Would the sliced white muschrooms work and taste just the same? Thanks

I reccomend using baby bellas and adding a little butter when sauteing they are delicious
