We all loved this recipe! It was easy to make and came together quickly. We did use 20oz of pasta and added more flour, butter, and stock to match. We also used canned artichokes. We will surely be making this again!

This was fine, but wasn't good enough to warrant the extra fuss of the roux and broth - I could have just tossed the cooked tortellini with olive oil, lemon and fresh herbs and it would have tasted just as good.

This recipe was amazing! For Italian recipes I always just follow my own way with the spices since it’s pretty hard to ruin a pasta dish with too much oregano. I added some basil, parsley, thyme, pepper, etc. until I was satisfied with the flavor and I also added some sausage medallions. I also had some leftover mozzarella so I added that and then the Parmesan. It was so good!!!

We didn't want cheesy tortellini so we made this with farfalle and it turned out tasty. Used canned artichoke hearts and let the sauce sit a bit to thicken. We added extra garlic and looked forward to leftovers!

I would add more seasoning next time, but otherwise it was really good. I had a little chicken that needed to be used so I cooked that up and added it in.
