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.
I made this using my own tomato sauce recipe using fresh homegrown tomatoe's and also fresh basil and oregano. I could not find just cheese tortellini, so used cheese and ham, which went so great with the sauce.
I made this for myself for dinner and enjoyed it very much. The other member's of the family had lamb (which I do not eat) but came up for seconds with the tortellini and also enjoyed it.
....................I just managed to save some for leftover's for today! lol
A very easy recipe to make with wonderful flavours from the fresh herbs.
For anyone making this ~ I do think using fresh herb's would make a big difference to this recipe, but you can't beat this recipe for simplicity, ease and flavour.
We love cheese tortellini any number of ways, & thought it would be nice to try your very simple recipe! Easy to put together & tasty, too, & with 2 out of 2, that makes for a winner in my book! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]
