Directions:

STEP 1

Bring a pot of water to boil and then cook the tortellini according to directions on the package.

STEP 2

Meanwhile, sauté some garlic with olive oil for a minute in the skillet and then stir in roughly-chopped mushrooms for a couple of minutes until they are brown. Stir in 1 cup of mushroom’s water and bring to simmer before finally seasoning everything with salt and black pepper.

STEP 3

Drain the tortellini and stir them in the mushroom sauce. Apply the finishing touches by adding some butter and parsley, set them aside.

STEP 4

In a separate small pot place the heavy cream and bring to boil. Turn the heat off now, and mix the heavy cream with Parmigiano Reggiano. Season everything with black pepper and whisk well until the content of the pot appear smooth and creamy.

STEP 5

Place the tortellini in 6 greased individual cocottes for baking and cover them with the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese fondue you just made. Flatten puff pastry to ¼ inch thickness and then cut 6 rings the size of the individual cocottes [this could be done in a bigger baking pan and served family style if desired].

STEP 6

Brush the edges with a beaten egg and then turn upside down and cover completely making sure the edges are well pressed against the dish. Brush the top of the puff pastry and bake in the oven at 400F for about 12 mins until the puff pastry turns golden. When ready, take them all out of the oven and brush them with honey and sprinkle them with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese before serving them. Buon Appetito e Buone Feste!
