Expert Tips

Another kind of mushroom, such as cremini or white button, can be used in place of the shiitake mushrooms.

Spinach or mushroom tortellini can be used in place of the cheese tortellini.

Remove the tough stems of shiitake mushrooms before slicing the mushroom caps. Save the stems for soup stock.

Serve crisp breadsticks and baby greens tossed with balsamic vinaigrette with this tortellini. Serve white wine or iced tea to drink.
