Inspiration Strikes!!

Posted on December 11, 2012. Filed under: Main Course | Tags: , , |

So, every once in a while a get slapped in the face with inspiration. Part of it comes from my weekly Sunday night Food Network marathon, and part of it just comes from walking into a grocery store. Today, I took Matt to work and decided I wanted some tortellini with alfredo sauce. Then I realized that store bought alfredo sauce has pretty much no flavor, so I decided to add something to it. That turned into adding shallots, red onion, garlic and mushrooms.  What turned out was something pretty tasty, and I’m proud of it. You should try it out yourself!

Amped up Alfredo with Tortellini

1 package tortellini, cooked
! can store bought Alfredo
3 shallots
2 cloves garlic
1/2 red onion
Fresh Mushrooms
Salt and pepper
Balsamic vinegar
Fresh Parmesan

  1. Chop the shallots, garlic, and red onion into small pieces. Heat up a saute pan with some olive oil and saute the pieces. Add the mushrooms after a few minutes of sauteing. Season all with salt and pepper and add just a touch of Balsamic, for a kick.
  2. When the onions are transparent, add the Alfredo sauce and bring to a simmer.
  3. Once the sauce is warmed through, add the tortellini until everything is coated evenly. Top with Parmesan and serve warm.
