This is almost identical to a Real Simple recipe. I made a bunch of changes. I had no peppers, so I used 4 baby eggplants. I also replaced the parsley with some fresh sage and a spring greens mix. I also added way more seasoning. Super yummy.

This is a great dish for making when you've got a bit more time, then stashing away in the freezer! I used red bell peppers (my favourites) and since I was omitting the red pepper flakes (personal taste preference: zero tolerance of anything spicy) I added some extra herbs: rosemary, thyme and sage. I used my Vegetable Stock and cooked the tortellini for just 10 minutes since it was to be reheated at a later date. But I transferred a small portion for sampling immediately and cooked it for an extra few minutes. Great blend of flavours, ellie_. We really enjoyed this. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
