Do you believe that this succulent deep flavor dish is done in less than 15 minutes?! So if you are a working mum or just running short on time, this is the recipe you should save immediately; Spinach goat cheese tortellini!
The fresh tortellini (refrigerated type) are my favorite type, but if you don’t have at hands, the dry ones are just fine but requires more time to cook. This recipe calls for spinach goat cheese tortellini but any other tortellini type you find at your deli shop will also do, i know it’s not that easy to find in Doha.
This recipe yields 2 generous servings, you will need:
- 300g spinach and goat cheese tortellini, fresh
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup cream
- 1tsp flour
- 1/2 tsp powdered garlic
- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup fresh or thawed chopped spinach
- salt to taste
Cook tortellini according to package directions (usually it’s 3-5 minutes). Drain, rinse with cold water, and set aside.
Whisk milk, cream, flour and garlic powder and bring to medium heat, when the firt bubble starts to form add the Parmesan and spinach and cook together to combine for 2-3 minutes before folding in the tortellini. Simmer for 5 minutes and serve warm with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese on top.
Believe me you will never order tortellini at a restaurant anymore! Such a delicious creamy dish ready at your table with no time and efforts. Another meatless dish for those days.
After a delicious lunch I always wish if there is leftover for dinner, so i recommend to double the recipe not to regret it later!
