Two 9-ounce packages purchased cheese tortellini
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, chopped
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon [freshly] ground black pepper
1 cup dry white wine

Add onion, prosciutto, garlic, dried red pepper and black pepper. Sauté until onion is
golden brown, about 10 minutes. Add wine and bring to boil. Add mushrooms, bell pepper,
green onions and peas and simmer until almost all liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes. Add
cream and boil until sauce begins to thicken, about 5 minutes. Add tortellini, parsley,
basil and Parmesan. Simmer until sauce coats pasta, about 4 minutes. Season to taste with
salt and pepper. Transfer pasta and sauce to large bowl and serve. Serves 6.
