 Tortellini Alfredo

Tortellini Alfredo

Tortellini Alfredo is a mouthwatering Italian dish that combines the delicate flavors of tortellini pasta with a rich and creamy Alfredo sauce. These small, ring-shaped pasta pockets are typically filled with a blend of cheese, such as ricotta or Parmesan, and sometimes accompanied by savory meats like prosciutto or ham. When served with Alfredo sauce, which is a velvety blend of butter, cream, and Parmesan cheese, the result is a delightful harmony of textures and tastes. The dish's creamy sauce perfectly complements the tender tortellini, creating a luxurious and indulgent culinary experience that is sure to please any pasta lover's palate.

3 cups broccoli florets

20 oz. refrigerated Tortellini
