Mr. Food

Serves: 2

  • 1 (9-ounce) package fresh cheese-filled tortellini
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter, divided
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

Instructions
  1. Cook tortellini according to package directions; drain and return to pot.
     
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Add mushrooms and sauté 4 to 6 minutes, or until tender, stirring frequently.
     
  3. Add remaining 3 tablespoons butter, the Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon basil, and the pepper to skillet; mix well.
     
  4. Serve tortellini topped with sautéed mushrooms and sprinkled with remaining 1 tablespoon basil.
Timesaving Tip

Let kitchen scissors save you work and time – simply snip the fresh basil for this recipe (and other herbs for other recipes) instead of chopping them.
