  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the tortellini, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. While you get the tortellini going, combine the tomatoes, spinach, salt, pepper, basil and garlic in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture begins to bubble.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, milk and cream. Stir this mixture into the saucepan along with the Parmesan cheese. Heat through, then reduce heat to low, and simmer until thick, about 2 minutes.
  4. Drain the tortellini, but do not rinse, then pour them into the saucepan with the sauce. Stir to coat, and serve.

This was delicious!! I followed the recipe almost exactly- the only difference was I used italian diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano because I didnt have the one specified. Also I us...

This is a really nice, easy recipe that looks beautiful and tastes better than I've gotten in some restaurants. I basically followed the recipe, but had no fresh spinach, so used half a box of f...

I have never received so many compliments on a meal before! It was a little runny, but I seemed to be the only one who thought so. I think next time I might try adding some shrimp to this, every...

My family and I loved this dish...my one year old kept asking for more! It was so simple, and it is delicious. I actually didn't have any cream on hand, but I had everything else, so I just us...
