"A rich and creamy upgrade for store-bought tortellini that is quick to whip up and tastes restaurant-grade. Go for mushroom, meat, or spinach and ricotta tortellini, or if you don't have any, you can also use your favorite pasta shape, like tagliatelle or penne. For an even more rich, umami flavor, you can use pancetta or prosciutto instead of ham ."
