Tortellini with Mushrooms, Ham, Red Peppers and Cream Recipe

by katerina on March 10, 2008

This pasta recipe is a comforting, and simple dish fit for any weeknight supper.  Sometimes I feel like adding cream to a sauce is cheating since  nothing with heavy cream is ever bad. However, I love the richness which cream brings to a sauce, not only that but in this recipe the ham, mushroom, and pepper flavours are really enhance by the cream.
