Herbed Tortellini (or Ravioli) Recipe

Frozen tortellini or ravioli is always a great backup dinner for when I forget to take something out or we are short on time for one reason or another. But sometimes it just seems so plain. One night I started mixing a bunch of things in with the sauce to come up with this Herbed Tortellini recipe. It can be used with ravioli or tortellini or probably any other pasta, those are just the only two I’ve made it with.
