Delicious and exactly what I felt in the mood for on a cool evening. With all the ingredients to hand, this took little time to prepare, and was so good, rich but comfort in one dish! Thank you, loved this

I did make a few change to this recipe ~ I used fresh cheese and ricotta Tortellini instead of frozen, I halved the peas and left out the prosciutto ham ~ using some fresh tomato instead (only because my DD does not eat meat). Apart from that everything was as per the recipe, and what a recipe! Apart from me overcooking the Tortellini (only a little) this was amazing. I served with garlic bread and we really did enjoy this recipe. I also had enough for the next day... wow, we really did enjoy this. So creamy and rich and full of flavor! I will be making this again for sure!
