  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Cook tortellini according to package directions; drain and return to pot.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add garlic, and saute 1 minute. Add mushrooms and saute 4 to 6 minutes, or until tender, stirring frequently.

  4. Serve tortellini topped with sauteed mushrooms and sprinkled with 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) with kitchen shears instead of chopping them.

Just made it today. Delicious, easy to make - will become a regular dish at our home. Have shared it with others who are vegetarians. This would also be a great sidedish for T-Bone Steak.

This was delicious. I added 1 tsp. truffle oil and a sliced zucchini. Would not hesitate serving this to anyone!

Excellent mean, simple easy and the mushrooms make an excellent meat sub!!!!

Because of the richness of the butter (and yes, I still do use real butter) and the Parmesan cheese, this is probably closer to 4 servings when served with a salad or bread. That said, this has been added as one of next new pasta dishes on my list. Sounds very tasty and different.
