"Sorry everyone. My computer was acting up ... does that on this site ... don't ask me why. Site didn't let on my review had been posted and then I tried again ... thinking it was me.... but in the mean time, it had posted .... and I kept on trying. Oh well. It's minor in the grand scheme of things. I would edit ... but capability does not seem to exist."

"I made this because I had some frozen tortellini to use. The recipe was simply sausage and tortellini in white sauce and was sort of bland. I can think of better ways to use expensive tortellini."
