I loved the Buca Di Beppo tortellini but in my area they stopped selling it. Thumbing through a Kraft magazine that I received years ago I found their version of tortellini and kept the sauce recipe and changed the items that they added to customize it similar to what Buca use to serve. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family. This is a request of friends and family for the recipe so I figured I would share with all.
As an alternative I have seen bacon added.

How To Make
Pour broth and water into large sauce pan. Stir. Bring to boil. Add tortellini. Reduce heat to meduim-low; cover. Simmer 8 to 9 minutes or until tortellini is tender. (Don not drain.)
Add cream cheese, peas, broccoli and red pepper; stir. Heat 2 to 3 minutes or until cream cheese is completely melted stirring occasionally.
Stir in shredded cheese. Let sit a few minutes off the heat for cheese sauce to thicken up.
