Fresh tortellini is ideal for a weeknight dinner since it cooks so quickly. You can find it in the refrigerator section of your supermarket. Here, we use a mushroom-and-cheese filling, but others would work. Also, substitute fresh baby spinach in place of arugula, if desired. Prep: 20 minutes, Cook: 12 minutes.
