Do you have someone in your house that always uses the big spoon and fork, you know, the two oversized utensils in our silverware sets that are actually serving pieces? Well, my son likes to use them to eat with. Everyone in my house loves my homemade Mac & Cheese. But it blew their minds when I made this version with tortellini instead of pasta. Tortellini Mac & Cheese. Makes you want to eat it with the big spoon, huh!
TORTELLINI MAC & CHEESE
One 20-ounce package frozen cheese tortellini
One 16-ounce block Velveeta, cut into cubes
3 T butter
1/2 to 3/4 C heavy cream
Salt & black pepper, to taste (optional)
Cook the tortellini according to package directions. Drain the tortellini and return it to the same pot you cooked it in. Add in the Velveeta, cream, butter and salt and pepper, if desired. Very carefully stir (so you don't tear the tortellini) the mixture over low heat to melt and incorporate. Serve hot.
