"I doubled the recipe for our large family. It was good! Super easy to make and the whole family loved it. I used colorful fresh bell peppers and the only seasoning I used was Italian seasoning, pepper, and a sprinkle of kosher salt at the end. Will make again!"

"This was really good! I hate to revamp a recipe and rate it but I stayed really close to this. I ran out of parm and parsley. I omitted the parsley and basil and added one tsp of Italian seasoning. I used fresh Romano cheese in place of parm. The flavor was amazing and lighter without a traditional cream sauce :)"

"i just got thru makn this and i made it basicly according to the recipe. i did change the broth to 1 cup and cornstarch to 1 T. Also the package of 3 cheese tortellini was 20 ounces. i did 1 cup of green, red, yellow and orange bell pepper so it was very colorful ;) i used leftover ham from Thanksgiving so it wasnt just canned ham :D i also sauted the garlic with the peppers instead of waiting to add it a little later. its delicious but i will wait and see what my 2 boys will think when they get off the bus lol"
