Pesto Alfredo Tortellini

Are you sick of pasta? NEVER you say… well then here is another winner for you.

This Pesto Alfredo Tortellini is fantastic. Amazingly fast and it really does taste so good.

What you need,

1 (12g) package of fresh tortellini (I used cheese)
1¼ cup Alfredo Sauce (I used Classico)
¾ cup jarred pesto, or homemade if you like
1 (14.5oz) can chopped tomatoes with Italian seasoning, drained a little
½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
½ cup grated Mozzarella cheese
½ tsp. fresh cracked black pepper
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes

Cook the tortellini according to package directions.

In a large skillet stir together the Alfredo sauce, pesto and tomatoes.  Season the sauce with pepper and red pepper flakes. Heat over medium until it starts to bubble. Add the cooked tortellini and stir to coat. Add the cheeses and stir until melted.

Serve right away with a nice salad on the side.

This pasta was fantastic as is, but if you wanted to add some cooked chicken breast or grilled sausage that would be awesome. You could also use a beef tortellini if you wanted!

I have a feeling this one will be going into regular rotation.
I hope you like it as much as I did!
