    About this recipe: An old boyfriend's mother used to cook this for me whenever I ate over. Cheese tortellini are served in a creamy tomato and spinach sauce. I love it!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 1 (450g) package cheese tortellini
    • 1 (400g) can diced tomatoes with garlic and onion
    • 1 cup chopped fresh spinach
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried Italian basil
    • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
    • 2 tablespoons plain flour
    • 3/4 cup (190ml) milk
    • 3/4 cup (190ml) thickened cream
    • 1/4 cup (20g) grated Parmesan cheese

    Directions
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the tortellini, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.
    2. While you get the tortellini going, combine the tomatoes, spinach, salt, pepper, basil and garlic in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture begins to bubble.
    3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, milk and cream. Stir this mixture into the saucepan along with the Parmesan cheese. Heat through, then reduce heat to low, and simmer until thick, about 2 minutes.
    4. Drain the tortellini, but do not rinse, then pour them into the saucepan with the sauce. Stir to coat, and serve.
