Nutty Cheese Tortellini

I like to plant Italian flat-leaf parsley in a long terra-cotta planter so I always have some on hand. It adds bright, fresh flavor to this pasta dish. —Barbara Penatzer, Vestal, New York

    Looks like a winner! Will try it this week with fresh basil as I already have all the ingredients.

    I prepared this dish for dinner tonight and it is SCRUMPTIOUS! I toasted the walnuts before mixing them in with the tortellini. My Dad went back for seconds!
