3 cloves garlic, minced
20 oz Buitoni mixed cheese tortellini, cooked according to pkg directions

In a large skillet over medium heat, brown off ham a bit, adding in garlic and tossing as it cooks with the ham, approx 1-2 minutes. Add 2 cups cream to same skillet and simmer till slightly thickened, then add tortellini to pan, as well. Add more cream if needed, to make a nice creamy consistency. Continue to gently simmer until mixture is hot throughout and cream has thickened nicely. Toss in peas; garnish with shredded Parmesan to serve.
