    good recipe. i made this a little differently. I used a sliced red onion which I fried with the garlic in a little olive oil before adding the tomatoes. I added a teaspoon of sugar to offset the acidity of the tomatoes, a teaspoon of mixed herbs, and a vegetable stock cube in the sauce instead of salt and pepper. then I mixed everything together and topped with the grated cheese before grilling it till the top was browned and crispy. I only used 7oz of tortellini and halved the amount of tomatoes and kept the rest of the ingredients as per recipe. we had 2very generous servings.

    Good - easy and quick! My kids picked out the tortellini (there's no foolin' them!), but we all enjoyed it. Only thing I did was substitute Italian Seasoning for the oregano. Thanks for the recipe!

    Cheese tortellini is pretty much a staple in our house, & finding this new way to serve it is most appreciated! The only change I made was to substitute lemon pepper for the usual S&P! Thanks for sharing a very nice keeper! [Made & reviewed in Gimme 5 tag]

    This was a nice change from regular spaghetti sauce over tortellini. I actually used 1/2 the tortellini, but a full recipe otherwise and enjoyed the extra veggies. Otherwise didn't change anything! Made for Photo Tag.
