I really liked the saucy flavors. I made a half recipe using a quart of tomates and a small can of tomato sauce. Also used romano cheese. This is an easy home cooked meal, thanks!

This is a very tasty sauce and easy to put together. I made one change in that I used cheese ravioli in place of the tortellini since most of the tortellini I am able to find around here leaves much to be desired. Thanks.

Served with a tossed salad & some garlic toast, this made a quick, easy & delicious Friday night dinner! I scaled the recipe in half, used my own home-made tomato sauce (which is fairly spicey) and frozen spinach & ricotta tortellini. Thanx Bookworm!
