4 servings (serving size: about 1 1/2 cups pasta mixture and 1 tablespoon cheese)

If you can't find cremini mushrooms, sliced button mushrooms will work fine.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain and keep warm.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add pancetta. Cook 5 minutes or until almost crisp, stirring occasionally; drain. Add onion, garlic, and mushrooms; cook 4 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring frequently. Add spinach, broth, tomato, and pepper. Cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts, stirring constantly. Toss with pasta. Divide evenly among 4 bowls. Sprinkle evenly with cheese.

Liked everything except the sun-dried tomato bits that were still hard and bitter in the finished dish.  I might try this again and pre-soak the tomatoes in some boiling water to soften them up, then add them.  We all wound up picking the pieces out of the dish.  But otherwise, the flavors were good and everyone loved the tortellini.

It was really easy to make (my husband cooked it - he has no cooking skills), but I ended up adding some more flavor. We also used chicken broth. Personally it just wasn't for me - it tasted fine, I just wouldn't make it again.

Quick and easy! Also swapped out chicken stock for the vegetable stock. Added a splash of aged balsamic vinegar at the end to give it the zip needed. Will make again for sure!

Very easy, yet elegant dish. Add broth gradually to get the consistency of sauce you desire.

My family really did not like this recipe. It was a little to watery and the vegetable broth added little or no flavor.

This is a great and easy meal. I also subbed fresh garlic for bottled. The carnivore in the house who avoids leafy greens like the plague even likes this and has seconds.

This was lovely. I used chicken stock instead of vegetable, but otherwise made it as it's written. Lots of great flavors, layered and complex, in a simple and easy to prepare meal... And so quick to prepare! Wonderful for a weeknight when you need to cook but don't have a lot of energy or time.

This dish is great! A quick, elegant, meal with many great flavors. I substituted real garlic for bottled as I don't use the bottled stuff along with organic chicken broth. This would be great to sub a soy or turkey bacon if you don't eat pork. I also added a touch of Kosher salt to add a little more flavor. Beautiful and simple. My husband LOVED it!
