Delicious! I used a 20 oz package of whole wheat cheese tortellini and low-fat cream cheese. That made the sauce the perfect consistency! This tastes like a fancy alfredo dish but without all the fuss -- my toddler loves it too! Thanks so much for sharing - it's a keeper!

The taste is great. But it's a bit too thick. So it would be great with milk or cream added to it. Thanks appetizerqueen :) Made for Cookbook tag game

I used 1/2 the cream cheese and threw in some red pepper flakes on five cheese tortellini. I added a touch of lemon zest as garnish and it really brightened it up. Served it with baked fish and a green salad. It was delicious and easy. Be sure and leave the tortellini al dente. I got busy and didn't. Still tasted delicious.

This was fantastic! Especially o you like cream cheese. The pesto combination truly is great. I had never tried teh sausage filled tortellini but I did this time and I think it makes the whole thing a great package. Served with a loaded salad and it was perfect. Thanks a.queen.

Good recipe but I felt there was too much cream cheese. I cut back to 3/4 of a block, but that still was too much. Next time I'll only use 4 oz cream cheese and probably double the pesto sauce since its flavor got lost in the cream cheese.
