One of my kids favorite meals. They love spinach, which is a good thing. This is an easy meal to throw together. A nice one skillet meal.

I hope you try it..

How to Make Cheese Tortellini W/ Creamy Tomato Sauce & Spinach


  1. Prepare tortellini according to package. Drain
  2. In a large skillet; combine the tomatoes ( undrained ), sauce, garlic, spinach, salt and pepper. Over medium heat, bring mixture to a boil. Stirring occasionally.
  3. In a separate bowl; mix cream, milk and flour with a whisk till smooth.
