Reviews for Spinach Cheese Tortellini
"I have made this recipe over and over again. My family LOVES it. There are never leftovers!"
"We loved this recipe! Made these changes: Used a bag of baby spinach, which I steamed first. 1/2 large onion added with the mushrooms being sauteed. A dash of red chili flakes, gave it a little punch. So good!"
"needs a little bit more flavor. A little more garlic or something."
