Expert Tips

  • The varieties of tortellini available in the refrigerated section of the supermarket are growing. Try some of these other flavors, as well, in this recipe.
  • Add grilled chicken or beef, cut into strips, for a heartier meal.
  • Surprise everyone by serving apple or cherry crisp for dessert--no one will know you didn't even bake it! Heat canned apple or cherry pie filling, and top with granola and whipped cream.
  • How do you grind peppercorns? It’s easy using a mortar and pestle, mini-food processor or spice or coffee grinder. Or place them in a resealable plastic bag and pound with a meat mallet or rolling pin.
