1 (20 ounce) package refrigerated cheese filled tortellini
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/3 cup diced sun-dried tomatoes

Slice SPAM into 1/3 inch slices. 

Grill SPAM over medium heat until grill marks appear.  Remove from grill. Slightly cool. Dice SPAM.  Set aside.  Prepare tortellini according to package directions.  Drain.  In large saucepan, add cream and cheese, cook over medium heat until combined and creamy. Add SPAM, peas, and sun-dried tomatoes.  Mix well.  Add tortellini. Toss to coat.  Makes 6 servings.

I was recently contacted by a SPAM representative.  They offered me a starter box of SPAM products, plus a beautiful hand pained trivet and a SPAM spatula.  Looking at the delicious SPAM products, my mind began thinking of all the wonderful recipes that I could create using SPAM

So that is why June is SPAM month here on My Kind of Cooking.  Keep checking back all month long for more delicious SPAM recipes and tips!

To kick off this month of tasty treats, I created SPAM-ellini.  I had never grilled SPAM before, but I was so pleased with the results, that I plan to grill up another batch soon.  The sauce was creamy and not too rich.  The sun-dried tomatoes added a depth of flavor to the sauce.  But the real star of this recipe was the delicious grilled SPAM!  The great flavor and texture of the SPAM, complemented all of the other ingredients, to make a dish where everyone went back for seconds.

On Tuesday, I will post details on 
how you can win your own box of SPAM goodies!

  1. Spam always associate me not a nice but I see that it can be in tasty version. I must try it.

  2. I like Spam but my hubby doesn't. One of our best friends associates it with the food he ate while in the military back in the 'Nam days so it's not very popular around here.
    But I would like to try this sometime. It does sound good!

  3. Oh my gosh! Bill would be ecstatic with this! I didn't know there are so many varieties of Spam out there. Have a good weekend Linda!

  4. We love Spam--and what a coincidence--we actually have everything but the sun dried tomatoes here. This just may be on the menu soon. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I really love cooking with all flavors of spam, my mother started me on it when i was a kid. My favorite flavor is cheese.

  6. I have not had spam in so long...I'm not really sure what it tastes like.

  7. I once smoked a SPAM with the top scored, which actually gave it a great presentation. Then I glazed it near the end and it looked great.

    Very creative use of SPAM you did here.
