Ingredients

8 ounces cheese tortellini

1 tablespoon butter

minced
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to boiling and cook tortellini per package directions; drain in a colander.

Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat. Melt the butter; add the garlic and cook, stirring, for approximately 1 minute.

Whisk in the flour and red pepper flakes to make a roux, about 1 minute.

Gradually add the milk and light cream (half & half), whisking continuously, until it begins to thicken, about 3 minutes.

Blend in the cream cheese, grated parmesan cheese, and nutmeg, until fully incorporated.

Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add tortellini and gently stir to combine, until heated through.

Serve immediately garnished with fresh chopped parsley.

Yes. It is really that quick and easy.
