Its a keeper and I will use again. Not bland. I think we have been making this every other week for six months.

This was soooo tasty! We loved it! One small thing have to add the kale before the tortellini and let it cook awhile. I added them at the same time and by the time my kale was tender, my tortellini was mush. Still tasted great and not a drop went to waste. Will definitely make again and again! Thanks for posting! :)
