DIRECTIONS

  • Fill a large pot with hot water and set to boil on stove/cooktop.
  • Heat the olive oil on medium heat in a large deep pan, and dice the onion while the oil heats.
  • Add the onions to the pan and stir occasionally -- at the same time dice the red peppers.
  • When your hot water is at a boil, add the tortellini and set a timer.
  • Add the red peppers, crushed peppers and dried basil to the onions, stir, and let saute gently for 1 minute.
  • Add the tomatoes and basil to the sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it reduce. If you use fresh basil, add it a minute before serving.
  • Drain tortellini well, and put back in the pot and cover. Check the sauce for desired consistency.
  • Add sauce to the tortellini, plate and serve with fresh grated parmesan cheese.
