– 1 pound cheese tortellini

– 2 tablespoons olive oil

– 1 small onion, finely chopped

– 1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained

– 2 cups fresh spinach leaves

– 1 cup heavy cream

– 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

– Salt and pepper, to taste

– Fresh basil leaves, for garnish (optional)


1. Cook the tortellini: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the cheese tortellini and cook according to the package instructions until they are al dente. Drain the tortellini and set aside.

2. Prepare the sauce: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and chopped onion, and sauté until they are soft and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.

3. Add the tomatoes and spinach: Stir in the diced tomatoes and fresh spinach leaves. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the spinach wilts down.

4. Make the creamy sauce: Pour in the heavy cream and grated Parmesan cheese. Stir well to combine all the ingredients. Let the sauce simmer gently for 3-4 minutes, or until it thickens slightly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

5. Combine with tortellini: Add the cooked tortellini to the skillet with the creamy spinach tomato sauce. Gently toss everything together until the tortellini are coated evenly with the sauce and the spinach is evenly distributed.

6. Garnish and serve: If desired, garnish the creamy spinach tomato tortellini with fresh basil leaves for an extra burst of flavor and freshness.

7. Serve and enjoy: Serve the creamy spinach tomato tortellini immediately, while it’s still hot and creamy. Enjoy this comforting and flavorful pasta dish!
