This recipe comes together so simply! I used more garlic and crushed red pepper than what was stated, other than that, cooked exactly as instructed. The amount of flavor that comes out of the recipe for the time you put into it, is well worth it! I served it with a caprese salad and crusty bread. This is a great solid weeknight recipe.

This dish was very bland. Def, will not make again. I even added fresh parm cheese after in bowls and it still didn't help.

Very good recipe! I would recommend only using 1/2 tsp. of the crushed red pepper - it seemed like 3/4 tsp. was a bit overwhleming. I also added 1 cup of chopped rotisserie chicken because my husband likes to have some sort of meat with every meal. It was a good addition!

dish was very bland. the tomatoes and spinach combo was good but the pasta itself had no flavor. the only reason it got good reviews is that other reviewers spiced it up.

I used a good tortellini (barilla 3 Cheese) and with the fresh herbs out of my garden it was a hit....DH who is very picky loved it and it reheated rather well the next day I did add some Parmesan on top also a good quality...for those that said it was bland maybe you need to take a look at the quality of your ingredients....the one thing I have learned when cooking healthy is that quality matters

I've been making this recipe for years. It's a good solid recipe that you can prepare in a few minutes. I use fresh garlic instead of bottled for more flavor. It's so simple, my daughters took this recipe to college when they were learning to cook.
