Betty’s Kitchen Creamy Tortellini Carbonara Recipe Videos

Betty demonstrates how to make Creamy Tortellini Carbonara. This is a quick and easy pasta dish to make, but it looks very elegant when served. It goes well with Mini Parmesan Breadsticks.


19-ounce package refrigerated or frozen tortellini, stuffed with meat and cheese or cheese only
2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
8 slices crisp bacon, crumbled
2/3 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
½ cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
½ teaspoon freshly ground black peppercorns
fresh parsley sprigs for garnish

Cook tortellini in a large pot of water, according to package directions. Drain and set aside. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large, deep skillet. Saute 2 cloves of chopped garlic in butter, until garlic is soft. Add cooked tortellini, 8 slices crumbled bacon, 2/3 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, ½ cup whipping cream, and 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley. Grate about ½ teaspoon black peppercorns over the top. Stir the mixture until well combined and pour onto a medium-sized platter to serve. Garnish with a couple of sprigs of fresh parsley and enjoy with Mini Parmesan Breadsticks and a healthy green salad! Love, Betty ♥
