  • ½ pound refrigerated cheese tortellini

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon dried basil

  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme

  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano

  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley

  • ¼ teaspoon dried red pepper flakes

  • 2 tablespoons minced onion

  • 2 tablespoons minced green bell pepper

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 7 ounces tomato sauce

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon chicken soup base

  • 6 fluid ounces heavy cream

  • ½ cup white wine


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; stir in tortellini and return to a gentle boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tortellini float to the top and filling is hot, about 4 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir basil, thyme, oregano, parsley, and red pepper flakes into hot oil.

  3. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; cook and stir until onions are translucent, about 2 minutes. Pour in tomato sauce and bring to a boil. Stir in sugar and chicken bouillon until dissolved.

  4. Reduce heat and stir in cream and wine; bring close to a boil, stirring constantly. Gently stir in tortellini and serve.
