Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil; stir in tortellini and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the tortellini float to the top and the filling is hot, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain and keep warm.

  • Blend tomatoes, 1/4 cup parsley, 4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, basil, pepper, and bouillon in a food processor until smooth. Set aside.

  • Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir garlic until softened and fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in tomato-basil blend. Add salt; reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer 5 minutes. Pour in heavy cream; bring to a slow boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and let sauce simmer until thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Pour sauce blend over cooked tortellini. Top with remaining 3/4 cup parsley and 1 tablespoon Parmesan.

I followed the recipe pretty closely the first time I made it, just used my home canned tomatoes instead of the cannned tomatoes from the store. Good basic recipe....then I went crazy for round 2 and added all of the extra stuff that we like...more garlic, extra cheese, fresh mushrooms, sweet Italian sausage. My daughter, the fussy one ate two bowls. Plus the home canned tomatoes gave it that garden fresh taste. YUM Read More
