    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    Tortellini with Roasted Garlic Sauce

    1 large bulb garlic
    9 ounces fresh tortellini pasta
    2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
    1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
    1/2 cup nonfat sour cream
    1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
    2 tablespoons Frank's Redhot Hot Sauce


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut 1/2 inch off top of garlic, discard. Remove papery outer skin, leaving cloves intact. Wrap garlic in foil; bake 1 hour or until tender when pierced with sharp knife. Let stand until cool enough to handle.

    Cook tortellini according to package directions. Rinse under cold water; drain well on paper towels. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add tortellini in batches to oil, cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes or until light golden. Add more oil, if necessary. Drain on paper towels.

    Separate cooled garlic into cloves; pinch each clove so roasted flesh comes out. Place cloves in blender or food processor. Add mayonnaise, sour cream, Parmesan cheese and Redhot sauce. Cover; process until pureed and very smooth.

    Spoon into small saucepan; cook and stir over low heat until hot and bubbly. Transfer to small serving bowl.

    To serve, arrange tortellini on serving platter. Dip into Roasted Garlic Sauce.

    Prep time: 35 minutes Cook time: about 1 hour
