This is a perfect substitution for potatoes to accompany steak or any grilled meats. Not only is it delicious, but it's almost as easy as baked potatoes. This has been a family favorite for years and we make it often. The cooking time includes cooking the tortellini. Enjoy!

I really liked this! I made it as a main dish, with the following substitions/additions: instead of wine, I used dry vermouth, added 1 box of frozen artichoke hearts when I boiled the pasta, and added 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil in step 4. If I'd had fresh basil, I would have added it at the end, instead of parsley, but fresh basil is still about 5 months away. I loved how fast this came together, and was a nice, filling meal. Thanks for posting!

This was just ok to us, not a lot of flavor.

Truly outstanding recipe in my book. I was in such a rush tonight with life getting in the way of cooking the evening meal and this came to the rescue. Firstly, it was amazing easy and fast. Secondly, it took a store bought product like tortellini and dressed it up fancy. And most importantly, it tasted so good. I served ours along side a breaded chicken breast but next time I think I will add in some more veggies when I am doing the garlic and make this a main dish. I sprinkled some Parmesan on at the end and that was really good. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag.
