Mmmm, quick and delicious! I followed the recipe, using cheese tortellini, normal cream, fresh basil leaves, and no olives. Easy to prepare, I got a rich thick coating sauce and we absolutely loved this, no left overs! Thank you, will make this again!

Thanks. I basically used your ingredients and added a pinch of this and that...I used heavy cream and rosemary I had in fridge. Topped with some cheese, omitted olives. Very quick, easy and filling.

This was just okay. I found that it did not thicken enough for us. I thought the chicken broth and garlic gave the sauce a nice flavor, and this was super easy to put together. My 5 year old loved it. I thought it was just okay, probably would not make it again.
