Kentucky Legend

TORTELLINI ALFREDO

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup Kentucky Legend Diced & Cubed Ham (Tip: If you already have Kentucky Legend Quarter Sliced Ham, that will work! Just dice it on your own.)
  • 1 block (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 package dry Italian dressing
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 ounces Parmesan cheese
  • 4 tablespoons butter

Directions:

Add tortellini to a large pot of boiling water. Cook for about 10 minutes (until pasta is floating).

Simultaneously, heat a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add the heavy cream, milk, cream cheese, Italian dressing, and stir frequently to create a smooth texture.

Add ham to the sauce mixture and stir well.

Drain the cooked tortellini and stir into the Alfredo sauce mixture. Enjoy!
