Tortelloni with Gorgonzola
Spinach Cream Sauce



Pasta


Creamy

This delicious Tortelloni with Gorgonzola Spinach Cream Sauce is rich and filling. The tortelloni can be filled with meat, cheese, mushrooms or my favorite cheese and fresh herbs.

If your not familiar with tortelloni, they are the same shape as tortellini only larger. Fresh tortelloni is always best but if you don’t have the time frozen will be find.

Of course this Tortelloni with Gorgonzola Spinach Cream Sauce is full of calories. If you want to try the tortellini with a lighter sauce just top it with some fresh tomatoes and basil. They’re delicious.
