      Although I changed this up a little bit, I believe I remained true to the spirit of the recipe, which was fantastic. I wanted to double the ingredients for a large batch of tortellini, so I used 2 (20-oz.) packages of refrigerated tortellini - one was tri-color cheese and the other was chicken. I used a 20-oz. box of Pomi marinara sauce with 2 cups of heavy cream, to which I also added a 14.5-oz. can of spicy pepper fire-roasted tomatoes for some texture. I did not add the flour and water combination because the consistency of the sauce was to my liking. I added a 14 oz. can of artichokes, which I diced, 1/2 t. of dried thyme (I was out of fresh). I also did not add the olive oil. Long story short, the end result was delicious and a big hit with everyone. I definitely was glad that I made so much. Thanks for sharing!

      Wonderful recipe. Very easy to do for a weeknight. I omitted the flour since the sauce I used was thick enough. I used only 1 tbs of olive oil in it. I omitted the artichoke. Thanks Skippy :) Made for Bargain Basement tag game
