  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups diced ham
  • 1 20- ounce package fresh or frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 3/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh chopped parsley


  • Heat olive oil in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened. Add diced ham and garlic and cook for several minutes, until browned.
  • Add chicken broth, tortellini and heavy cream. Stir until combined and bring to a boil. Cook for about 8-10 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed and tortellini are tender.
  • Meanwhile, heat the broiler on your oven (place the rack in the center of your oven).
  • Remove from heat. Stir in half of the Mozzarella and all of the Parmesan cheese until melted.
  • Top with remaining Mozzarella and place under the pre-heated broiler for about 3-5 minutes, until golden and bubbly (watch closely to avoid burning). OR if you prefer not to use the broiler, cover and let sit for 5-7 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • Garnish with fresh, chopped parsley and serve immediately.
