Tortellini with an easy parmesan dill sauce tastes just like springtime in this easy recipe!


  • 16 ounces fresh tortellini
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 leek, white and light green parts rinsed and sliced
  • 1 cup frozen baby peas, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chopped dill, plus extra for garnish
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, plus extra for garnish
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Cook tortellini according to package directions. Scoop out a cup of the pasta water and drain the tortellini.
  2. Melt in the butter in a heavy deep skillet over medium heat. Add leek and cook until just tender.
  3. Add peas and stir for a minute. Add tortellini, parmesan and just enough pasta water to make a light sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Stir in dill. Yay!
  5. Divide among plates, garnish with parmesan and a little more dill and serve.
