I love one pot meals. It is nice to not have so many dishes to clean up at the end of the meal when I am chief cook and bottle washer around my house. I especially love when I find meals that are as delicious as they are simple! The kids and I loved this meal and we will definitely be having it again!
Ham and Cheese Toretllini
(recipe found at kevinandamanda.com via pinterest)
1 tablespoon butter
1 onion, diced
12 ounces ham, diced
1 cup chicken broth
9 ounces tortellini (fresh or frozen)
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup baby sweet peas, frozen
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup shredded cheese
Melt the butter in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until softened and golden brown. Add the ham and continue to cook until lightly browned.
Add the chicken broth, tortellini, and plenty of salt and pepper to taste. Stir well to combine and bring to a boil. Cover, then reduce heat and simmer for 12 minutes until the tortellini is tender. Stir in the peas and cream. Off heat, then stir in 1/2 cup cheese until well combined. Top with remaining cheese, then place under the broiler in the oven until cheese is golden and bubbly, about 3 minutes.
