“Easy, fast, creamy cheese tortellini! With butter and creme fraiche, it's gotta be good! Throw in some fresh herbs and garlic and it's done. Serve this as a side dish to any meat entree, or if you don't want to share, make it your meal and eat it all yourself! You can use frozen tortellini, but the fresh pasta is so good”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook tortellini according to package directions.
  2. While the tortellini is boiling, heat the butter in a small skillet over medium low heat. When butter is almost fully melted, add the herbs, onion and garlic.
  3. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. You don't want it to sizzle, you are just warming them in the butter, so the low heat is important.
  4. Put the creme fraiche in a serving bowl large enough to hold the tortellini. Add the warm butter herb mixture and stir to combine - it doesn't have to be stirred to a smooth consistency, the hot pasta will take care of that.
  5. Drain the pasta and add to the serving bowl, mixing well to coat pasta. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
