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.

Almost too rich for me, but my daughter really wants me to make this again!
