This past wekend I wanted to make something really nice for dinner. Last week I came up with this great idea for a meal and finally got around to making it on Saturday night.
Tortellini with Toasted Walnuts and Prosciutto
2 packages dried tortellini cooked and drained.
1 cup of walnuts toated in a dry pan with 3 minced cloves of garlic
Combine 1 T of butter and 1 T of olive oil with 1 tsp. of pepper in the large pot you cooked the pasta in (once pasta is draining).
Add the pasta, walnuts and 2 T fresh parmesan to the pot with the olive oil and toss.
Place the tortellini in the dinner bowls.
Top tortellini with ribbons of prosciutto. I used 12 strips of Prosciutto for 2 big servings.
This meal was not only beautiful but delicious - and would be fantastic to feed a crowd. It could certainly feed 4-6 people.
