Creamy Rosemary Tomato Tortellini

Sorry I’ve been a little quiet this week, but I have a great recipe for you today. I’m sharing one of my new favorite comfort dinners. It’s Creamy Rosemary Tomato Tortellini, made with four cheese whole wheat tortellini, tossed in pan-roasted tomato & fresh rosemary cream sauce.

I’ve been falling in love with tortellini lately. I don’t know what took us so long to “meet” but we are together now and no one can keep us apart!

I was messing around in the kitchen a couple of weeks ago, playing Chopped. Have you ever played Chopped in your kitchen?
It’s not so much playing it as forced to. If I haven’t gotten a chance to go grocery shopping and I need to have a dinner, I open the fridge and …

“Hmmm, what can I make with butter, sour cream, baking soda and batteries?”

Ha ha, may be it doesn’t go exactly like that, but you get the jest.

This wonderful dinner came out to be on one of those “what can I make” nights. It turned out delicious and I’ve actually made it a couple more times since. Great comfort dinner…easy and tasty.

  2. In a medium sauce pan, cook the onion and whole tomatoes on medium-high heat until nicely caramelized.
  3. Add fresh rosemary and saute for a few more seconds, until aromatic.
  4. Lower the heat to medium and slowly pour in the heavy cream. Add salt and pepper.
