12 ounces ground beef

1 large celery rib, finely chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled and finely chopped
1 dried bay leaf
1 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup marinara sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (1 lb.) package fresh cheese tortellini
Grated Parmesan cheese, optional


Cook beef in a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Stir thoroughly to break up meat until no longer pink, for about 5 minutes.

Add onion, celery, carrot and bay leaf; cook, stirring often, until vegetables are tender, for about 6 minutes.

Add cream and marinara sauce; simmer until sauce is thickened slightly, for about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, boil a pot of salted water and cook tortellini per package directions. Drain, add pasta to sauce, and toss well. Top with Parmesan cheese if desired.
