      This was simply delicious. The flavor of the sauce was fantastic. I didn't find it too much work at all. The only difference I did only cause that is all I had was for the Alfredo I used half and half cream and percorino romano cheese. Didn't affect the taste at all I am sure. Also my tortellini had cheese filling. But we love cheese. Thank you so much for posting this recipe Cathy

      I was excited when I found this recipe. I was looking for a creamy tomato sauce to go with tortellini I had bought. After many different searches I found this perfect recipe. Like some other chefs I panfried some chicken breasts (just until barely cooked) and added them to the marinara sauce and let simmer until the chicken was completely done. I doubled the recipe, but cut down on the butter in the alfredo sauce. I will definitely make this recipe again.

      The sauce was to die for. Very, very delicious! I followed the directions only decreased all the onion slightly and did not add any mushroom as we didn't have any. I did break the rule and used cheese tortellini as that was all I had. Came out fabulous. I pan fried some chicken to go with it. Next time I can't wait to try it with a meat filled tortellini.
