Creamy tortellini with ham & mushrooms

For some odd reason here in Finland I don't eat tortellini and ravioli as often as I used to do in Italy.
Perhaps because here they are more expensive or just because it doesn't come to mind...

I bought these tortellini from a popular convenience store (Lidl) because they were on sale! Sales are always a good excuse to buy stuff :D

So here's a very simple and tasty sauce to eat your tortellini with!

NOTE: These tortellini were filled with ham but also differently filled ones are just fine.

Ingredients (serves 2):
  • 250 gr tortellini
  • 250 ml cooking cream
  • 150 gr diced ham
  • 4 or 5 medium size champignons mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • rapeseed oil or olive oil
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • grated parmesan cheese

Put a pot of salted water on to boil.
Chop garlic finely, wash and slice the mushrooms. Saute chopped garlic in a saucepan with oil over medium heat then add the mushrooms and cook for about 5 min.
Add the ham slices, cook for few minutes stirring. Pour the cooking cream, stir, and let cook at low heat until the cream gets thicker. Add salt and pepper up to taste.
When the water boils, drop in it the tortellini and cook until al dente. Mix the tortellini with the sauce and serve with parmesan cheese.
