Umami is defined as that hard-to-describe flavor that makes it impossible to put down your fork. Not sure if you’ve ever experienced the ‘fifth taste?’ After one bite of this dish, you’ll totally understand the obsession. Tender cheese-stuffed tortelloni is tossed in a creamy sauce that’s dotted with bites of earthy mushrooms. The finishing touch is a scattering of crunchy scallion greens, plus chili flakes for a kick. Talk about savory bliss. Plus, it cooks up in no time. What are you waiting for?!

Cheese Tortelloni(ContainsWheat, Eggs, Milk)
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry all produce. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Trim and quarter mushrooms. Mince or grate garlic.
Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and softened, 7-9 minutes. TIP: If pan seems dry, add another drizzle of olive oil.
Meanwhile, add tortelloni to pot of boiling water. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until tender and floating to the top, 3-5 minutes. Turn off heat, leaving pasta in water.
Add garlic, scallion whites, half the Italian Seasoning, and 2 TBSP butter to pan with mushrooms. Continue to cook on medium-high heat, stirring, until scallions are softened and butter has melted, 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low.
Stir cream cheese, sour cream, ¼ cup pasta cooking water (⅓ cup for 4 servings) and 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) into pan until thoroughly combined. Using a slotted spoon, gently transfer tortelloni to pan. (TIP: Add more pasta cooking water as needed to create a creamy sauce.) Carefully stir to coat in sauce. Season with remaining Italian Seasoning, salt, and pepper.
Divide pasta between bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan and scallion greens. Top with chili flakes (to taste).
