Easy Tortellini Amatriciana

This Easy Tortellini Amatriciana is a great recipe for a quick and easy midweek meal. My local Italian store sells the best homemade tortellini – I love to pick up a bag of them which I can cook up with a creamy tomato sauce. The tortellini come in a range of fillings – vegetarian and meaty. It’s impossible to choose my favorite!

I start the sauce by browning the guanciale until crisp. I then add chili flakes, onions, garlic, salt, and pepper cook for a couple of minutes until soft and translucent. I then deglaze the pan with white wine before adding tomato and cooking down the sauce. Once the sauce is almost ready, I cook the tortellini in boiling water. Add a swirl of cream to the sauce and toss well with the tortellini. I serve mine with shaved Parmesan and torn basil leaves.
