Lighter Mushroom Tortellini Alfredo Recipe

Lighter Mushroom Tortellini Alfredo


This vegetarian pasta dish requires minimal ingredients so it's a perfect choice for a "meatless Monday" or for any busy midweek dinner.


  • 1 (9 ounce) package refrigerated tortellini
  • ½ cup sliced portobello mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup evaporated fat-free milk
  • ¾ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper


  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil; stir in tortellini and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the tortellini float to the top and the filling is hot, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add sliced mushrooms and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove mixture to a small bowl.
  3. Add evaporated milk to skillet and heat over medium-low heat until warm. Stir in Parmesan cheese until melted. Add cooked tortellini and toss to coat. Garnish with mushroom-garlic mixture.
