how to make white wine garlic tortellini

White Wine & Garlic Tortellini

This recipe is so simple and only requires a few ingredients. BONUS: you can drink the left over wine.

Servings 3


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/3 cup white wine dry
  • 1 package tortellini
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • dash of pepper


  1. Begin by cooking your tortellini according to the instructions. Usually, you only have to boil it for a few minutes.

  2. In a medium sized frying pan, add butter, garlic, and parsley. Cook over medium low heat, or until spices become fragrant. Be careful not to burn the butter.

  3. Increase the heat to medium and get the butter nice and hot. Once again, be careful not to burn. Add in the white wine.

  4. Let the white wine reduce and cook down. You don't want the taste of raw wine in your dish.

  5. Add heavy cream.

  6. Add salt and pepper.

  7. Taste your sauce. If it tastes like there's too much wine, add a tbsp of butter and a tbsp of heavy cream.

  8. Add a little bit of lemon juice from your lemon. I like to do two wedges - but people like different levels of acidity.

  9. Add your tortellini and reduce to low heat. Coat the tortellini with the sauce well.

  10. Serve and enjoy!
