  • A rich and creamy cheese sauce transforms a bag of frozen tortellini into company fare!


  • 1 cup frozen baby peas
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp Ground White Pepper
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 bag (19-ounces) frozen cheese tortellini, cooked according to package directions
  • 1 package (3-ounces) cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp minced red bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp butter OR margarine
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup minced green onion
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped and toasted walnuts, optional
  • 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning


  1. Heat butter in large skillet over medium heat. Sauté onion and red pepper until tender, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in peas and cream cheese, stirring until cheese is melted. Add cream, blue cheese, Italian herb seasoning, parsley, garlic powder, white pepper and salt; stir just until cheese is melted and mixture is thoroughly heated (do not allow mixture to boil).
  2. Toss with cooked tortellini. Place in serving bowl. Sprinkle with walnuts, if desired. Serve immediately.


To make a lower calorie version of this very rich sauce, use low fat cream cheese and substitute skim evaporated milk in place of the whipping cream.
