Tortellini is great. Its a pasta filled with cheese, what could be better than that? This one I just bought three cheese, but there are so many other fillings. This recipe is super simple. Basically just three ingredients: cream cheese, spinach, and tortellini. I could literally eat spoonfuls of cream cheese, so I was excited to put it on my pasta. If you’re thinking this will be more of a sauce, its not. It is more of a cream cheese spinach coating. But, I wasn’t complaining. Simple and delicous recipies are my favorite. I almost named my blog that but it was already taken.. 🙁 Back to the pasta. If you like cream cheese, this is the pasta for you. If not, I would just make an alfredo sauce and add the spinach to that.
