Tortellini with Peas and Ham

I’m in a “quick dinners” mode these days.  Amelia has had an over-abundance of doctors appointments, medical tests, etc as of late.  (And not to mention, sleep deprivation plus labor intensive dinners don’t go well together!)  I threw this together one night because I had all the ingredients on hand and we were really happy with it.  It’s quick, easy, and comforting.  Three good things!
