Can't decide whether to serve tortellini with red or white sauce? Serve it with both. In this dish, the tortellini is combined in a white sauce which is then served on top of the red sauce. It creates a pretty presentation of the white surrounded by a red border. From the Best of Bridge, Aces cookbook.
