    1. Melt the butter in a large frypan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and ham and saute for 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
    2. Pour in the cream and the cheese, stirring frequently, until the sauce starts to thicken and bubble. Season with salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
    3. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add the tortellini and cook to desired doneness, or according to packet directions. Add the peas to the boiling tortellini in the final minute of cooking. Drain all from the water and toss with the ham and sauce mixture.

    I'm curious...why does a recipe get a horrible review and things like "I want to light it on fire" when most likely it was human error that may have caused the problem? I see a lot of good recipes and try them out and have usually good results based on the experiences of others. There seems to be a lot of super rated recipes that have one or two bad reviews and it always is to the extreme. I appreciate honest reviews, but perhaps if one person's attempt fails, make an accurate account of what may have happened rather than blame the recipe or make comments on how you went about disposing of the evidence.  -  12 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a great recipe except I added fresh minced garlic. I highly recomend trying this one.  -  09 Nov 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Awesome recipe. The kids loved it and it is soooo easy to make. I scored major points with the wife. Absolutely Fan-TAS-tic. However, you may need to add a water flour mix to thicken.  -  03 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
