Food on Fridays with Ann
The other day I stared at the fridge and spotted a container of mushrooms, some half-n-half, and assorted leftovers. When I spied a few cheese tortellinis, I decided to throw together a quick cream sauce. I’ve written about mushroom cream sauce before, but I didn’t really want to look it up or pore over recipes online. I just wanted to eat lunch as soon as possible.So I started grabbing things that sounded good, hoping the combination would turn out okay.I sauteed sliced mushrooms in a combination of butter and olive oil.Poured in some half-n-half.Shook in some sage, salt, pepper. A little garlic powder. Some Parmesan cheese.Then I dropped in the leftover tortellini to reheat in the cream sauce.I ladled it into a bowl and ate it with a spoon.
