6 Cheese Tortellini in Spinach and Artichoke Sauce

DSCI0253

This is a VERY easy recipe! I snapped it up a notch, what else is new, and I ended up adding some more chicken broth to it since the sauce got a little too thick while I got a little distracted chatting after I had a little vino… lol..  so just add at your own discretion!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (10 oz) box frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 med onion, chopped
  • 2 TBsp flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne t.t
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper t.t.
  • 1 (14oz) can artichoke hearts, chopped
  • 1 cup grated romano or Asiago cheese
  • 1 LB cheese tortellini
  • salt-n-pep t.t.
  • Olive Oil

Steps:

  1. Heat a deep skillet over med. heat with a good portion oil and onions, when onions become soft add garlic. Saute ~5 mins.
  2. Meanwhile cook the tortellini in salted water according to package directions, strain and set aside.
  3. Sprinkle the flour into the skillet and cook for 1 min.
  4. Whisk in broth, then cream and bring to a slight bubble.
  5. Season sauce with nutmeg, cayenne, crushed red pep, and salt-n-pep, reduce heat to low.
  6. Add spinach and artichokes still using whisk to blend well.
  7. Toss spinach-artichoke sauce with cooked tortellini and serve with additional grated cheese!
