Recipe by Cathy123




  • Marinara: In a 2-quart sauce pan, over medium heat, cook onion and garlic till tender.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients.
  • Heat to boiling, stir to break up tomatoes.
  • Reduce heat, simmer with cover on for about 20 minutes.
  • Stir occasionally.
  • I recommend blending it with a hand blender Alfredo Sauce: In small sauce pan, over medium low heat, melt butter.
  • Just before mixing with pasta, add cheese, stirring until it is melted.
  • Slowly add cream, heat until thoroughly mixed.
  • Add to pasta according to directions.
  • Pasta: Prepare Tortellini according to package directions.

  • Garlic is the secret to this dish so use as much as you want.
  • I usually adjust it according to who I serve it to.
  • We love garlic so I use lots!
  • I use a mixture of stuffed Tortellini, like Chicken, Sausage, etc.
  • but try to stay away from cheese stuffed.
