This side dish was so easy to make, and reminded me of an Italian restaurant-style tortellini dish. Not only is it easy, it's quick, too, only 20 minutes from start to finish! This is also one of those dishes you can "play" with, by adding peppers, garlic, crushed red pepper, oregano, basil, garlic...and on and on! Add the spices and herbs your families love! You'll want to serve this with a beautiful salad, fresh bread, your choice of meat and there you'll have a wonderful dinner. We did!
