    I make this a lot and I love it! Easy, quick, tasty.

    Just a note. If you're going to make this recipe, make sure you use FRESH tortellini and not the pasta you can get from the pasta aisle. I did that and it just didn't turn out as nice!

    I agree about the tomato. This is one of my favorite simple recipes, but I add a can of spicy tomatoes for a little kick!

    I make a recipe like this one, but I add chopped tomato. Yum!
