Seafood Diablo with white sauce and tortellini

Sheila Hinds


husband,took me to Monterrey for our 18th anniversary. We found a wonderful restaurant by the bay. I wish I could remember the name,but what I ordered for dinner will stay with me always. It was called Seafood Diablo in a white sauce with tortellini. It was fabulous,my husband asked if I could duplicate it. I have made this recipe many times,and believe I have accomplished it, after gaining 5lbs.
