Spicy Zucchini/Squash Tortellini

I mentioned in this post that we have quite a few yellow squash in need of some yummy recipes. Well I originally found a very yummy sounding ravioli recipe but had no luck of getting my hands on any pre-made/frozen ravioli at the store, and as you know our kitchen is in no shape for making homemade ravioli. However, I did end up finding some tortellini so I changed up the recipe a little bit. It was pretty darn good, and it was a super big hit with Will. 
I once again used a variation of a recipe. I absolutely love trying new recipes and making them a little more my own.


1/2 yellow squash
1/2 zucchini
2 cups frozen tortellini
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 Tbs flour
1 cup skim milk
2 Tbs parmesan cheese
1/2 oz cream cheese (I originally used 1 oz and thought it was a little too rich, so add to taste)
1 tsp garlic salt
1+ Tbs red pepper flakes (Will and I like things spicy so add slowly and to taste)

Prepare tortellini according to the package. In a saucepan combine oil and 1/2 Tbs of the flour and mix. Once mixed add milk, parmesan cheese, cream cheese and the remaining flour. When it starts to thicken remove from heat.

Cut yellow squash and zucchini into thin slices, steam or cook in a frying pan until tender.

Once tortellini is cooked put into bowl with veggies and cover in sauce, and enjoy!
Let me know if you guys try this out, I would love to hear what you think! 

Anyone have any other yummy recipes I could try out with our squash and zucchini?
