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.
Tortellini with Mushrooms, Ham, Red Peppers and Cream(serves 2-4)

Add ham and saute then add peppers and cook for 5 minutes. Add pasta to cook and pour cream over mushroom mixture. Bring to a simmer and simmer until the pasta is cook. Taste and correct if necessary.
