Tortellini Primavera

This one is definitely for the kids! Cheese cheese and more cheese. And a few vegetables thrown in, but don't worry - they're totally hidden in the sauce so no one suspects a thing!  Super simple Sunday dinner, but would also be a gret weeknight dinner you can throw together in about 20minutes.

Tortellini Primavera
3 cups assorted chopped fresh vegetables (I had mushrooms, red peppers, carrots, brocolli, cauliflower)
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp butter
salt & pepper
2/3 cup Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1/2 cup skim milk
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 large package of Olivieri Three Cheese Tortellini (just under a pound)

Get a large pot of water boiling and cook pasta according to directions.  Meanwhile, prep all of your vegetables.

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium high and add the vegetables and garlic.  Season with salt & pepper and saute until almost done.

Lower heat a bit and add the cream cheese and milk.  Once the milk and cheese have unified, add the parmesan and stir to combine.

Add the cooked pasta and VOILA - super easy dinner that any kid will dig - leftovers heat up easy for lunch tomorrow too!


  1. Looks delish. I've never seen it with tortellini. Looks perfect.

  2. You're right! This is definitely for kids! My daughters love pasta dishes as cheesy as this! YUMMY!
