Cheese Tortellini in Homemade Mushroom Sauce
I am a huge fan of finding out how to make something from scratch. I have little knowledge in how to make a variety of sauces, so when I came across this recipe on pinterest, I was instantly inspired. It looked so good so we had to try it. Dan really likes mushrooms, which I know is an added bonus. This recipe is actually from Martha Stewart. I tweeked some things since shitake mushrooms are a little bit more expensive and we like garlic.
Cheese Tortellini in Mushroom Sauce
9 oz Fresh Cheese Tortellini
4 tsp Olive Oil
8 oz Fresh Shitake Mushrooms, Stemmed, Caps Halved and Thinly Sliced
8 oz Fresh Bella Mushrooms, Stemmed, Caps Halved and Thinly Sliced
6 Garlic Cloves, Thinly Sliced
2 C Water
Sea Salt and Ground Pepper to Taste
6 Tbsp Grated Parmesan
2 Tbsp Cold Butter
2/3 C Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley, Chopped
In a large pot of boiling SALTED water, cook Tortellini according to package instructions; drain.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add Mushrooms and Garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until Mushrooms are tender, about 7 minutes.
Add Water, season with Salt and Pepper. Cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add Tortellini, Parmesan, Butter and Parsley. Toss to coat, serve.
