Directions

Creamy Marinara Combine marinara and heavy whipping cream in a small bowl and mix together. If desired, heat sauce for 30 seconds in the microwave. Set aside while preparing the tortellini. Fried Tortellini In a medium saucepan, prepare tortellini per package instructions, leaning toward the lower end of cooking time. Drain tortellini and set aside to cool slightly. In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium / medium high heat. Combine & toss panko and parmesan in a large bowl. In two more separate bowls, add beaten eggs and flour. Dip tortellini in the flour, then then egg, and finish off by tossing in the panko/parmesan mix. Add tortellini to skillet and cook each side until golden and crispy, roughly 1-2 minutes for each side. Place fried tortellini on a paper towel lined plate. Serve immediately with creamy marinara dipping sauce.
