Here is a dish I made the other night to go along with hamburgers. You could very easily eat this pasta on its own or serve as I did as a side dish. I know my cousin who is a vegetarian would love this dish.

Below I've included step by step pictures on how to make Cheese Tortellini with Mushrooms.

1 package of cheese tortellini (I used a small package since this was for a side dish. You could always use the larger package and increase the onions, mushroom and garlic)

3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

1 medium size onion sliced fairly thick

3-4 cloves of garlic sliced

8 - 12 mushrooms washed and sliced (I used white mushrooms but brown or shiitake would go very nice as well)

Let's Get Cooking

  1. Bring a medium or large pot of water to a boil. Add the cheese tortellini and cook as per package instructions.
  2. While the tortellini is cooking heat the EVO (extra virgin olive oil) in a frying pan. Add the onions, garlic and mushrooms. You can now add any spices that you may like. I added chili pepper flakes to give the dish a bit of spiciness.  Cook on medium high stirring as everything is cooking for approximately ten minutes. 
  3. Drain the tortellini and put it into a serving bowl along with the cooked mushroom mixture. Toss and serve. ENJOY!
