Easy Garlic Alfredo Tortellini

So simple, so easy, and just amazingly creamy. Best of all, it comes together in just 20 min from start to finish!

Three-cheese tortellini are smothered in a homemade alfredo sauce. And the best part about this? No, it’s not the epic cheesy-garlic goodness. Or the creaminess that just melts away in your mouth. It’s that it comes together in just 20 min from start to finish.

Seriously. It’s just that quick and easy. No joke. But the secret ingredient here is the fresh tortellini. Dry tortellini can be used but the fresh ones just taste so much better, and cuts the cooking time right in half. Either way, I recommend doubling this recipe or else you’ll be fighting for seconds!

Easy Garlic Alfredo Tortellini

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

So simple, so easy, and just amazingly creamy. Best of all, it comes together in just 20 min from start to finish!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (9-ounce) package refrigerated three cheese tortellini
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk, or more, as needed
  • 1/2 cup half and half*
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions:

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook tortellini according to package instructions; drain well.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute.
  3. Gradually whisk in milk and half and half, and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Stir in cheeses until melted, about 1-2 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk as needed; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in tortellini and gently toss to combine.
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

*Half and half is equal parts of whole milk and cream. For 1 cup half and half, you can substitute 3/4 cup whole milk + 1/4 cup heavy cream or 2/3 cup skim or low-fat milk + 1/3 cup heavy cream.
