Tortellini cream, ham and peas: product testing 3 Dolce vita event (-44 weeks)


Recipe 92: to finish with the products from the Dolce Vita event, i will propose you a classic recipe my mum used to cook often and that i love with all myself… and it’s really easy too.

For this dish for two people i used: Ricotta and spinach tortellini 250gr (kindly offered by Giovanni Rana, sponsor of the event), 100 gr of single cream, 50gr ham, 100 gr of frozen peas, half onion, some butter, Parmesan, salt and pepper.

Put some butter in a pan with half of an onion chopped in little pieces. Let this cook and in the meantime defrost the peas in some boiling water and salt. When these are tender put them in the pan with the onion and the ham cut in little pieces.

At this point you can put the tortellini in some boiling water with salt and after just a minute they will be ready. Now I have also to admit that this brand is the one i normally use here like in Italy, if  I can’t find them fresh. The pasta is quite thick and this allows you to cook them without have mash tortellini, and the filling it’s really tasty.

In the meantime pour the single cream in the pan with the peas and the ham, and leave it until gets thick. Drain the tortellini and put them in the pan and mix it all.

When they have absorbed all the sauce, place the tortellini, peas and ham in a plate and add some Parmesan.

The dish is ready! Enjoy!

PS. Mamy ti ricordi questa ricetta??? quanto mi piace! L’ho riproposta con questi tortellini, anche se forse con quelli al prosciutto viene meglio! E come vedi fortunatamente abbiamo anche qui il buon Giovanni Rana che ci salva la cena!
