Reviews for Cheese Tortellini with Tomatoes and Corn
Sort By :
"I was going to give this 4 stars, but then I just noticed I had completely left out the parmesan cheese, so I will throw in the extra star on the chance the addition of the parm cheese would have put it over the top . :) I made this with (formerly) dried tortellini and grilled corn cut off the cob. It was good. VERY light and non-filling. I felt like it could have been a bit more flavorful somehow, but maybe the parm cheese would have helped with that. Will most likely make again!"
"Delicious and fresh tasting! We really enjoy this easy meal."
"My family loves this recipe. I always use fresh corn and put it on the grill until I get some nice grill marks. Then I cut it off the cob and add it to the other ingredients. It's become a summer favorite."
"Summer fresh and very delicious!"
"Yummy! And, you know something...the Bertolli dry tortellini (found in the dry pasta section at your grocery store) is really delicious, especially with the spinach in it. I like it better than the refrigerated cheese tortellini. I think the quality of pasta used in this dish makes the difference. Fresh corn is the best, and even sometimes just making it a day in advance and letting the flavors blend overnight make a difference."
