This sounded so delicious, I was dying to try it. I even made the tortellini myself. Not, definitely not, that it's bad. It's just that I love tomato sauce so much, I ended up feeling cheated. So, I would have said 4 stars. DH, on the other hand, lapped it up and went back for seconds (rare). So I'm rounding up to 5 stars. And thank you very much for providing me with a husband pleasing recipe.
Loved it! BUT I didn't follow your recipe exactly. It caught my eye because I've been making chicken meatballs for quite some time now and I've always wanted to try something besides spaghetti sauce with them. SO - I used my recipe for the meatballs, and browned them on the stove in a little olive oil. I lso adde3d additional Parmesan to both the meatballs and the sauce, and I omitted the poultry seasoning because my meatballs are Italian-seasoned. And I used linguini. At any rate, 8it was so good there was none left after we got done with it. It's a really great recipe that is open to all sorts of variations. Thanks!

OK lets see...My name is Diane and I'm married to a wonderful guy -- going on 20 years. We have 2 kids -- 1 daughter and 1 son a 70lb german shepard, a fat cat and a very snobby cat! I work a couple of days a week in the Loop and the rest of my time is spent sitting at the kids sporting events. I love to try new recipes. Luckily, hubby will try just about anything. The kids aren't so eager about that, but are generally very good sports about it!
