Spinach and Ricotta Tortellini With Ricotta and Herb Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by The Flying Chef

This is a very quick pasta dish to make that tastes great and makes for a great mid week meal. My son and hubby love this dish, as do I because I can have it on the table in about 20-25 Minutes, which for me is great, when you get in late and do not want to fuss in the kitchen all night.

We enjoyed this for dinner tonight. It was incredibly easy to put together. I served the sauce over gnocchi. I added a small handful of spinach to sauce and doubled the parsley too - both fresh from the garden . It makes a magnificent creamy sauce. Very versatile too.
