Reviews for Decadent Tortellini Primavera
"This was really really great. I used sundried tomatoes instead of regular and I totally forgot to use the parmesan Delish!"
"I really enjoyed this recipe, it had a good flavor and it heated up well the next day as well. I used frozen broccoli instead of spinach, and it was still very tasty."
"Absolutely wonderful! My husband even ate vegetarian this night!!"
"Delicious recipe. It is definitely a do it again recipe. May try it with chunks of chicken in it."
"Wow! I'm surprised at the differences in appeal of this dish. I LOVE IT!! But then, I love cheese stuffed tortellini....so maybe that's the thing. This was decadant and very yummy. I would make it for a party! But I could see where you may want to salt it if you're used to that...I'm used to a low salt diet so it did not bother me."
"I can't even click on a star...this is one of the worst meals I have ever made. No one, even my sonwho will eat anything pushed it aside. YUK!!!"
"Did not like - too rich, pasty, & tasteless - sorry!"
"I will add half the spinach next time--it was just too spinach-y for my taste. I also used grape tomatoes, and I thought it needed salt and pepper. Otherwise--great flavors."
"Very good! My kids even ate it! I added some red pepers and next time I think I'll add some artichoke hearts! YUM!"
