Eric loves tortellini – it is such an easy dinner for me to make. I always try and make my own pasta sauce. I really have to say “try” because there are some days I  want to make dinner as fast as possible ( it is usually after I cleaned the kitchen)

I think I could get an award for how dirty I can make a kitchen

Especially when I am making a sauce — so I came up with this really cool way to make an alfredo sauce that is SUPER simple and almost no mess. I have been wanting to share it for a while but never got around to it until last week when I had just cleaned the kitchen but had to make dinner.

So do you want to know the secret trick ( which is naturally gluten free too )

The BEST Alfredo Tortellini Recipe

So here is the trick – making the sauce in a food processor – the whipping cream ( which is the main component of an Alfredo) in a food processor will thicken up into a thick sauce – kinda like how you make whipped cream from whipping whipping cream for a while

This recipe takes only about 15 minutes to make which is another thing I love

You can make the same recipe with your favorite type of pasta – if you use gluten free pasta this whole dish would be gluten free

You are going to make about 1 1/2 cups of sauce ( you can store for later use too )
