Ingredients

  • 1 cup Single Cream (250 ml), see note 1
  • 2 cups Cheddar Cheese or similar, grated (140 grams)
  • 2 cups Broccoli Florets (100 grams)
  • 2 cups Bacon Slices (200 grams)
  • 16 ounces Fresh Cheese Tortellini (1.1 pounds/500 grams)

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Throw in tortellini and broccoli and cook until ready (this should take about 5 minutes unless the tortellini’s package instructions state otherwise).
  • Meanwhile: Fry the bacon. Pour in cream and stir. When the sauce has thickened, reduce the heat and stir in grated cheese. Turn off the heat.
  • Drain tortellini and broccoli. Pour the cheesy bacon sauce over and mix well.
  • Serve warm with some more cheese (optional).

Notes

  1. Single cream (UK) = Half and Half (US).
  2. You can use frozen or dried tortellini as well. If you do, bear in mind that the cooking time will be longer. Check for package instructions and add broccoli in at a later stage.
  3. If you prefer tortellini filled with a different filling, go ahead and use those.
