This incredible and quick cooking recipe was created by Chef Jonathan Garnier using our specialty fresh pasta Olivieri® Signature Formaggi with Aged Parmesan Reggiano Tortelloni.

To make this dish a meal, the pasta is cooked with Québec asparagus sautéed with garlic, thyme and balsamic vinegar. For best results cook until tender and crisp for additional texture to the creamy tortelloni.
Matane Québec Shrimp
This recipe also calls for Matane shrimp, also known as Nordic shrimp, from the region of Québec. This is most often sold cooked or frozen with a very short period of time where you can find it fresh. They are small, salty and perfect for meals like pasta, however any other fresh or frozen variety of shrimp can be substituted in if needed. To add an even more elevated touch to this meal serve with lobster tail or crabmeat.
