    Tried this for the first time last night and found the original recipe to be a bit bland (which is what I expected) but with a little tinkering did up the flavor to my liking. I did use 9oz. of the tortellini and added about 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic, 1/2 Tbsp. garlic powder which helped the flavor quite a bit and I also used 6oz. of sliced mushrooms which I found sufficient, also used fresh Baby spinach on my portion, let it wilt a bit, scrumptious! I could easily see using seasoned Italian sausage in this also. Will definitely try again very soon.

    Everything I love except the mushrooms. My son and I both have a allergy to mushrooms.

    Great flavors as is and really easy to add to. Just the dish to add some leftover chicken too.
