Orange parmigiano cream sauce

I just mixed up these ingredients on a whim in order to jazz up the ready made tortellini, which are a bit bland. And it was a smashing success!! It's simple and quick, and it makes an impressive difference to these store bought stuffed pasta!!

for 2 people

1 orange
20g butter
1/3 cup freshly grated parmigiano or grana padano
200ml cooking cream
some drops of milk

Thinly peel the orange skin, then grate it finely.
Sautè the grated orange peel lightly in the melted butter, just for a minute or two
Add the juice from orange, cook for about 5 minutes and let it condense itself a little
Add the cheese and cream, stir well and heat thoroughly. Add some drops of milk as needed to keep the sauce from getting too thick.
Serve over piping hot pasta, it is ideal for ready made spicach and ricotta tortellini!
