A simple pan sauce and fresh vegetables dress up family-favorite cheese tortellini.


  • 9 ounces refrigerated three-cheese tortellini
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup oil-packed dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 6 cups coarsely chopped fresh spinach or baby spinach
  • Ground nutmeg (optional)


  1. Prepare tortellini according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup cooking water. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms and garlic; cook about 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in wine, tomatoes, basil, salt, cayenne and reserved pasta water. Simmer 3 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in remaining butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, until melted.
  3. Remove from heat. Stir in tortellini and spinach until spinach is just wilted. Serve immediately. If desired, lightly sprinkle with nutmeg before serving.

Sometimes I find the best recipes when I'm not looking for them. It never occurred to me to make a tortelli dish with spinach, which I rarely eat. I wanted a dinner for a summer night, and when I saw the photo Tortellini, Spinach and Mushrooms in Wine-Butter Sauce, it looked good and takes only 25 minutes to prepare and cook. So i gave it a try. I didn't know if my family would like dried tomatoes. They all liked it! What great flavors for something that's so quick to make. I made it for four.m, like the recipe, but I doubled the tortellini and halved the spinach. It's great using the listed ingredients, but next time I may add shrimp or crab meat. I highly recommend this recipe.
