      I think I'm going to make more sauce next time because it was so good. I used Dreamfields Penne instead of tortellini and it so wonderful with a big salad for dinner.

      This is such a simple recipe, and so very tasty, it would be a shame not to serve this wonderful dish. I made exactly as directed, only doubling the recipe. Thanks so much, Valerie for sharing!

      This is a dish I have made for years and it's a favorite. I use a clove or two of chopped garlic rather than the onions and saute this quickly in a little butter, proceeding with the rest of the recipe.
