11/20/13 UPDATE: Finally got around to making this and it was easy and delicious! I used mushroom filled pasta and YUM! Found this in The Healthy Heart Cookbook. Sounds good and easy!

Well this was rated from 0 to 5 I liked it but didn't love it the DH didn't like it at all and the DM and DS thought it was fantastic, I used a veal tortellini (tri colour) and Jensens Organic basil and garlic pasta sauce (maybe a bad choice as it was very rich so maybe a pasata sauce would be better) and as my lot hate parmesan I used a cheddar cheese (could possibly do with more). For a midweek meal it is fantastic as the tortellini only takes 5 minutes to cook once you have your water boiling so can be on the table super fast. Thank you nemokitty, made for Everyday A Holiday tag game.
