      Delicious, Yooper! I used a cheese + spinach tortellini which was a perfect compliment to this Primavera dish. I used sliced green onions and added a touch of asparagus to the veggies. I also added a bit more parmesan to help thicken the sauce just a bit more to our liking. Thanks for the lovely supper, Yooper : )

      I never knew tortellini could taste so good. I didn't have any heavy cream so used milk instead and I added a cup of frozen peas as I was out of ham also. This is a keeper that I will make again. Thanks so much...
