Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 -20 ounces cheese tortellini (using a 20 oz pkg will make it less saucy and stretch this meal to feed an extra person) or 16 -20 ounces meat-filled tortellini, cooked & drained (using a 20 oz pkg will make it less saucy and stretch this meal to feed an extra person)
  • 3 ounces mushrooms, sliced (optional)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups pasta sauce (Bertolli tomato & basil)
  • 34 cup half-and-half
  • 14 cup parmesan cheese, shaved (to garnish)


  1. If opting for mushrooms: In a saucepan, over medium heat, saute mushrooms for 3 minutes; then add garlic and saute for 2 more minutes, then add pasta sauce and cook until heated through. Otherwise: In a saucepan, over medium heat, heat tomato sauce with garlic until heated through.
  2. Stir in cream, and remove from heat.
  3. Toss pasta in sauce until evenly coated.
  4. Sprinkle with cheese, to garnish.

I was looking for a quick recipe to fancy-up a jar of pasta sauce- this was perfect! I didn't have any cream, so used 1% milk- I'm sure it would be better with the cream, but the milk was fine too. I added about a cup of frozen spinich which I thawed and drained well too. Simple and good. Thanks!

This was just the kind of easy meal i was looking for to use some tortellini tonight. I cooked up some turkey bacon pieces, garlic and green onions before adding the sauce. The flavors went well together and dinner was ready in no time. Thanks for posting!
