How To Make cheese tortellini w/ creamy tomato sauce & spinach
Prepare tortellini according to package. Drain
In a large skillet; combine the tomatoes ( undrained ), sauce, garlic, spinach, salt and pepper. Over medium heat, bring mixture to a boil. Stirring occasionally.
In a separate bowl; mix cream, milk and flour with a whisk till smooth.
Pour milk mixture into the tomato mixture, also adding parmesan cheese.
Cook until bubbling again, then reduce heat and simmer about 3 minutes until thick.
Add cooked tortellini and stir to fully coat with sauce. Remove from heat and let cool 5 minutes to further thicken sauce. Add hot pepper flakes if using now.
I serve with a salad and garlic toast.
