Reviews for Tortellini Marinara
"This was so easy and so good and everyone loved it. I like the idea of doubling the recipe. I'm not a mushroom lover so didn't add them but will next time for the family :-) It was a great recipe!"
"This was very easy and good! I doubled the recipe and used jarred marinara. I usually just make my tortellini with marinara or alfredo sauce, so the extras really added to the dish! Even my 3.5 year old liked it. I will definitely make this again!"
"this was so easy yet very good! I used Italian cheese (since I had it on hand) and added some Italian seasoning and garlic. I could not find refrigerated marinara sauce, so used regular marinara sauce and it was excellent. Will definitely make this again!!"
"I left out the mushrooms and this was great!"
