Spinach Tomato & Cheese Tortellini

This is it. This is my son's favorite dish. He requested it often while growing up. As a result, when he married, it is one of the many recipes he requested from dear ole Mom. Creamy and delicious, Spinach Tomato & Cheese Tortellini is a crowd-pleaser and loved by my family. I serve it with Parmesan Chicken Breast and a BIG salad! I hope it soon becomes one of your families favorites as well. ENJOY!
