Turkey Tortellini Toss Recipe

Turkey Tortellini Toss Recipe

One night I had frozen cheese tortellini on hand and didn’t have a clue about what I was going to make. I scanned my cupboards and refrigerator and soon I was happily cooking away. So fresh-tasting and simple, this is a combination I turn to again and again! —Leo Parr, New Orleans, LA
