I have to say that I was very happy with this recipe. I've been married for about three years, and my wife recently found out that I'm a pretty decent cook. Since the cat's out of the bag, I've been doing a lot cooking, and have never been able to find a recipe for tortellini that I really liked. This one caught my eye, because it seemed more like a traditional Italian recipe, instead of something tossed in a crockpot. It turned out great!
The only thing that I thought was a little off, was the amount of time to cook the onions and garlic. I've found that carmelizing them definitely adds more flavor, but takes longer to do, roughly 20-30 minutes, depending on the serving size, and how much heat you like to use. I generally keep to a low to medium heat, so as not to burn the onions. I also added a little white wine for my own taste, after carmelizing the onions, and then simmered that for 3-5 minuted, then continued with the recipe.
But even with the small changes, it still does not take away from a delicious, and easy to prepare recipe. Very, very good, and it's definitely a five, because I love more traditonal Italian fare.
