Made this for dinner the other night. My family enjoyed it. The only thing I did was to leave off the proscitto. I made it and put it on the table for my family to add if they wanted it. That way both the vegetarians and non vegetarians could eat this. We used Arugula and cheese filled tortellini for the pasta.

Really really good, and so easy to prepare! I managed to get some nice baby spinach leaves, and I already had arugula, so I mixed the two :) I didn't have prosciutto, so didn't use that, and I used a cheese tortellini. Cut down quite a bit on the oil, in fact I used about a tblspoon of butter instead, maybe just a little more. I like the toasted pine nuts suggestion from some reviewers, whilst I didnt do that, I definitely will! Very much enjoyed this, thanks for a very tasty recipe!

DELICIOUS!!! My husband called it "dynamic," and I have to agree! Based on a couple of reviews, I was a little hesitant going in, but I'm glad I did! I pretty much followed the directions exactly as posted. I had the prosciutto sliced very thin, then I cut it into strips. I kind of stirred it in the pan rather than flipping, because flipping would have been entirely too tedious. I used arugula rather than spinach. I doubled the recipe except for the oil, which I just eyeballed, and I'm not sure if I wound up using more or less than called for, but it came out perfect. Thank you so much for posting this quick, easy, deliciously complicated tasting meal!

I was very disappointed with this recipe. Looking over it, what's not to like? Prosciutto, sun dried tomatoes, garlic, arugula; sounds great. But the prosciutto ended up hard but not really crunchy, which did not mesh with the tortellini or wilted arugula, and the whole dish was WAY too oily. Maybe it was just me, but I'm not trying it again.

Delicious! I used bacon and spinach and left out the onions as I don't care for them. This was very flavorful with the pepper flakes and rosemary and had a very light and fresh taste. Thanks for posting this great recipe! Made for the Best of 2008 event

Wow - all 7 of my family loved it. We did not have the spinach but we used extra onion and some fresh broccoli that we threw in to blanch with the tortellini.

This was delicious and easy to make. I used bacon instead of Procsciutto because it was very expensive and too salty for my taste. I also used fresh spinach and herbed chicken tortellini. It was great warm or cold, wonderful blend of colors and flavors. The fresh rosemary makes a huge difference.
