Ham and Cheese Tortellini

You'll need:
1 package of cubed ham
1 package of Italian or Parmesan cheese
1 large container of heavy cream
1 package fresh/frozen package of three cheese tortellini
1 stick of butter

Take a large pot and fill with cold water and salt. Bring to boil and add cheese tortellini. In a skillet or saucepan melt stick of butter add cooked ham and sprinkle with allspice, cook until hot and some peices begin to crisp. Add in heavy cream and bring to boil. Add in 2 tbsp of pepper and a pinch of salt. Sprinkle in cheese stirring constantly. Bring down to low heat. Sprinkle with netmeg and stir. Once tortellini begins to float, drain and add to the ham and sauce. Stir together and enjoy.

I created this recipe a few years ago. I submitted it for a schlorship competition in early March and one first place which included a thousand dollars toward my tuition. I was so happy and thought it would be a great recipe to share with you all.
