Pasta is often served with cream, parmesan cheese and a good grinding of black pepper. Here is a famous version made with tortellini, which can be bought frozen from Italian greengrocers and many supermarket freezer chests.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g frozen tortellini
125g butter
190ml cream
5 thin slices prosciutto, cut into ribbons
80g peas, cooked
100g parmesan, grated, plus extra to serve
freshly ground black pepper
salt

Method

  1. Plunge tortellini into a large saucepan of boiling salted water and cook for about 25 minutes or until just tender. Drain in a colander.
  2. Melt butter in a deep, heavy frying pan over a moderately slow heat. Add tortellini and stir until coated with butter. Add cream, prosciutto and peas, and cook mixture until cream thickens slightly. Add parmesan, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Serve immediately, with a dish of freshly grated parmesan cheese and a pepper mill for those who would like extra pepper.
