Tortellini Marinara

"My family loves this with a loaf of crusty French bread and green beans," relates Rita Perez of Roseville, California. She sometimes warms the savory supper in the slow cooker, but you'll find that it comes together very quickly on the stovetop.

    Very good, I would just add more tortellini next time. There was a lot of the delicious sauce leftover without any tortellini.

    My husband loved this's a quick, easy dinner! I used garlic marinara sauce instead of plain. Will make again!

    This was so easy and so good and everyone loved it. I like the idea of doubling the recipe. I'm not a mushroom lover so didn't add them but will next time for the family :-) It was a great recipe!

    This was very easy and good! I doubled the recipe and used jarred marinara. I usually just make my tortellini with marinara or alfredo sauce, so the extras really added to the dish! Even my 3.5 year old liked it. I will definitely make this again!

    this was so easy yet very good! I used Italian cheese (since I had it on hand) and added some Italian seasoning and garlic. I could not find refrigerated marinara sauce, so used regular marinara sauce and it was excellent. Will definitely make this again!!
