Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare tortellini according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup cooking water. Set aside.

  • 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.

  • Remove from heat. Stir in tortellini and spinach until spinach is just wilted. Serve immediately. If desired, lightly sprinkle with nutmeg before serving.
