I made this last night, and my husband and I really enjoyed it! It can be served as a meal for a hungry hubby or as a side for a ladies' luncheon. We used Gorgonzola cheese (only because we prefer the taste). We also used a two-colored tortellini mix, and the extra color made the dish even more appealing. We substituted edamame (again, just a personal preference) for sweet peas and added a dash of Italian seasoning. Lastly, we added the cheese while the dish was still warm, and it created a wonderful cheese sauce. Delightful with a glass of Pinot Grigio!

This is a flavourful kid friendly recipe. Very simple and wholesome ingredients. I have made substitutions and it is still delicious so it is very flexible as well. My usual is use fresh green beans instead of the peas and extra lemon juice. My little one always helps herself to seconds.

Nice. I used up bits of vegetables left over from other dishes. Made it with fresh linguine. Would be excellent cold as well.
