Ham & Cheese Tortellini

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups diced onion (about 1 whole onion)
  • 12 oz ham, diced
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • (9 oz) tortellini (fresh or frozen)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup baby sweet peas, frozen
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (Swiss, White Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack)
Instructions
  • Melt the butter in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until softened and golden brown. Add the ham and continue to cook until lightly browned.
  • Add the chicken broth, tortellini, and plenty of salt and pepper to taste. I use ½ teaspoon each. Stir well to combine and bring to a boil. Cover, then reduce heat and simmer for 12 minutes until the tortellini is tender.
  • Stir in the peas and cream. Off heat, then stir in ½ cup cheese until well combined. Top with remaining cheese, then place under the broiler in the oven until cheese is golden and bubbly, about 3 minutes. Enjoy!!
