I've made this recipe for a few years now (we always called it tortellini primavera) and every time I make it, I make a few changes. To cut down on fat, as many people mentioned, use skim milk, and instead of fat free cream cheese (which I've found really does significantly affect the taste negatively) I use neufchatel cheese which has about a third less fat but retains the flavor. Also, I've never made it with cherry tomatoes, either just chop up some plum tomatoes, or try using a package of sundried tomatoes instead for a little more interesting flavor. Baby portabellos can be substituted for white mushrooms, etc. This recipe is one of my favorites and has room for lots of possibilities.

I'm 19, and this was the first REAL dinner I made for my non-vegetarian parents. It turned out great, almost as if I came straight from a restaurant. I took the advice from others by additionally adding a can of diced tomatoes with green chillies. This gave the dish a little "kick." I also added Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and artichoke hearts. Great dish. Simple enough for a 19 year old college student to make :)

This recipe was really good. I added 3 cloves of minced garlic with the onions which was added some more flavor. I also added 1 can of drained diced tomatoes with green chilies with the spinach mixtured to add some spice. This dish was very rich and creamy. Very filling. Another suggestion that might be good is to add some artichoke hearts. Highly recommended.
