Delish Delish DELISH! Takes like under 30 minutes. Can I get a what-what!?

I’m trying not to totally lose my face over this tortellini dinner. It’s not even the tortellini. It’s the SAUCE. It’s that delicious creamy rosemary garlic SAUCE.

Oh Hi! hey. How goes it? I hope all is well with everyone! I had a dream last night that I had a baby, so my day is looking a little confused? Still trying to figure out if it was real life or just a dream. Pretty sure it was just a dream – I did a headcount this morning and I have the 2 kids that I know of – but still. You know what I’m talking about, right? Those dang dreams that just seem so dang believable! I’m trying to shake it off…

Uhm, did you see my earlier post? The one where you can WIN $100 dollahs!? GO ENTER! Now.

But first, tortellini. (Or go enter and then come back here for the tortellini…)

Let’s talk about this heavenly Alfredo sauce, please. I think I have bought a jar of Alfredo sauce about 3 or 4 times, and just at the first glob of white sauce that pours out of the jar, I get all yucky and wanna throw it away. It just looks so odd, and Double-Dare-style globby. Good thing it ain’t green.

Anyways. For that reason, I just go ahead and make my own lightened-up, garlicky and darn delicious sauce. And not glob-like, either.

Fun tip on flavoring your sauce? STAR Olive Oil with Fresh Rosemary + 3 garlic cloves. That delicious oil will sizzle, the flour will darken, the milk and broth will smooth it all out, and the parmesan will be added for extra kicks. SO fun!

Also, refrigerated tortellini.

I have to give these guys huge props for bailing me out on those cahrazy busy afternoons.  It can be hard to come up with meal ideas on the quick that 1. appeal to everyone and 2. that make themselves. 3. cheese tortellini seems to come through on both points, each time.

This Alfredo Tortellini appeals to pretty much everyone – thank you, Lawd! – and it is vegetarian on its own, but you can add grilled chicken to it and make it all Olive Garden-style.

I think I’ll just go drink the leftover sauce now.

ENJOY!

  1. Okay, after having this bookmarked for awhile and finally ordering this oil from Star I finally made it. And OMG with one exception and I couldn’t place it until my husband said it. It is a bit starchy. And I had a funny feeling about that once I put the 3 T of flour into the 2 T of oil. I make roux all of the time for many recipe bases and am so used to the using the same amount of butter to flour “ratio.” But I always try a recipe exactly the first time, well except for the garlic.. I always double the garlic lol 🙂 I think next time I’m either going to do 2 T oil to 2 T flour or 3 to 3 and try it. The flour thickened up so thick in the beginning I was hesitant. I did end up adding more fluid at the end to thin it down but just a little itty bit. But the flavor of this is sooooooo delicious. That was the only thing I would try to adjust. If you have a thick roux base with the flour it does normally carry over. I know the proportion of oil was correct based on oil and butter conversions but I am def making this again and going to get that part right to get rid of the starchy undertone….. making it many many times because it is so quick and simple and fresh. Thank you!!!!!
