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.

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 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!
