Melt butter in a large pan on medium-high heat. Stir in flour to create a roux and cook for about a minute, stirring continuously.
While butter is melting, cook tortellini per package instructions. Reserve some pasta water for sauce.
Stir in half and half and whisk to fully incorporate. If it is too thick, add pasta water as needed. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then add in the garlic.
Bring to a simmer and mix in italian cheese blend. Stir until cheese is fully incorporated.
Combine tortellini with sauce, serve and enjoy!
