Tortellini con Cannellini

Updated: Feb 26

This yummy recipe, Tortellini con* Cannellini beans, was a classic in my house growing up. Simple to make for a family of four, my mom would whip this together many a night after a long day at work. I've brought back the recipe, & my husband is obsessed! It's become one of his favorite meals. Plus, it's a perfect meal to have with a glass of chilled white wine now that it's warming up for Spring time!
