Cheese Tortellini Alfredo

Published on October 5, 2012 | Pasta, Rice, Grains

Pasta last night, but was not in the mood of tomato sauce. I wanted a cream sauce.  That thought brought me to the fettuccine Alfredo that I had the great opportunity to eat at the Alfredo Restaurant in Rome. The restaurant was a clean open space Italian restaurant as many are. Waiters dressed with black ties. Impeccable service. We of course ordered fettuccine Alfredo, their specialty. I remember as it was yesterday, the fresh homemade fettuccine with this wonderful sauce. Each bite literally  melted in your mouth.
Last night I wanted to recreate that feeling again.  Not having time to make homemade fettuccine,  we prepared it with cheese filled tortellini. Great dinner enjoyed by everyone. And yes the feeling was almost there.
Bon Appetit!!
