5 Cheese Tortellini


Made sauce with heavy cream and Fiesta blend cheese. I used Kale, diced tomatoes, onion & seasonings in this batch.

This recipe is on our rotation. We love this! What I love about this recipe is that you can add or take away and make a different version of it each time.

Galit gave me this recipe years ago and we have claimed it and made it ours.

What you need:
1 bag of cheddar cheese
1/2- 3/4 cup mozzarella
OR
1 bag Fiesta blend instead of Cheddar and Mozzarella

1 quart of half and half
OR
1 pint of heavy cream as well. (I use what we have on hand at the time)

1/2 bag spinach
OR
1/2 bag Kale

1 head of broccoli
OR
1 can diced tomatoes drained

1/2 medium onion chopped finely
a few shakes of Emeril’s Essence
a few shakes of Italian seasoining
1 tbsp minced garlic
pepper
1 bag of fresh refrigerated 3 cheese Tortellini

Let’s get cooking:

Saute your vegetables and garlic in olive oil and add your seasoning.

Make your tortellini according to package directions.

In a saucepan over medium heat combine half and half (or heavy cream) with cheese. Stir until cheese has melted and is well blended with the cream.

In a large bowl combine tortellini, vegetables and pour your cheese on top. Serve & enjoy!

    • I’m not sure which brands I’ve used. I usually grab whatever is cheapest on the shelf. I’ve bought them in bulk (frozen) from Costco, but like the fresh refrigerated ones best. I’ve tried the ones from Publix & Aldi and decided you can’t taste any difference. Love chicken tortilla soup!! Let me know how you like this once you have tried it out!
