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.
