"I thought this was a bit bland, but my husband loved it! Plan to use it with other noodles, but I might kick up the flavor with more seasonings next time."

"YUM. This one's going in my "keep" folder. Very simple & quick. There did seem to be more sauce than needed for 9 oz of tortellini. And next time I'll start the onions with the garlic. But the flavor was absolutely wonderful."
