Easy Roasted Garlic Alfredo Tortellini:
2 heads of roasted garlic (refer to the post for directions if you don’t know how, it’s simple!)
2 tablespoons Pompeian Picholini Olive Oil, or sub for regular Pomepian Olive Oil
1 cup heavy cream,dividied
heaping ¼ cup sour cream
½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese + another ¼-1/2 cup
salt & pepper to taste
1 14oz container of tortellini (refrigerated or frozen – if using frozen, cook according to directions beforehand)
3 tablespoons of butter
parsley to garnish (optional)
In a food processor or blender, combine the 2 heads of roasted garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons of Pompeian olive oil, & ¼ cup of the heavy cream. Blend until the garlic is pulverized.
Into the garlic mixture, pour in the remaining ¾ cup heavy cream, heaping ¼ cup sour cream, & ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese. Season to taste with salt & pepper.
Blend the mixture for 30-60 seconds until everything is combined. The mixture will be thick & slightly lumpy, which is perfectly normal! Set the sauce aside.Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet.
Add your tortellini & toss the pasta around in the melted butter to coat. Pour the sauce on top of the pasta, & stir gently to combine. Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring gently occasionally. The sauce will thicken.
Sprinkle on ¼ cup to ½ cup of shredded Parmesan cheese (depending on your tastes), stir to combine and remove from the heat. Pour the tortellini into a serving vessel, & garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
