Tortellini Michelangelo is a rich, creamy, and filling dish. Legend has it that Michelangelo conveyed his love for this dish through letters. I have seen this made sometimes with added chicken & prosciutto -sometimes just with mushrooms & peas... there are many varieties out there... some with meat tortellini, some with just cheese tortellini, and some use tri-color tortellini. This recipe is based on the dish from my local Italian Pizzeria here in NJ - theirs consists of: meat tortellini, chicken, pancetta, prosciutto, and minced onion in cream sauce. I use my own basic white cream sauce Basic Italian White Cream Sauce (Like an Alfredo or Bechamel) to make this dish and for this recipe you need to 1st prepare that sauce.
