Sue’s Spicy Tomato Basil Tortellini
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
I am just trying to get out of my shell and start cooking more in preparation to move out and this recipe gave me that confidence I needed! I had to make a few adjustments based on the ingredients at my local grocery store but it was still delicious. I had difficulty finding fire-roasted tomatoes, so instead used diced tomatoes that had Italian seasoning, I also faced difficulty with the habenaro pepper, having to switch to jalapeno, just due to the people I was serving it to were not too into spice. One thing, is that I did have difficulty making the sauce thicker, mine was thin (still taste good) but I think that is purely a result of my lack of experience, and maybe not adding the ingredients such as heavy whipping cream at the right time or something with my stirring. Overall, I can't wait to make this dish again, it was delicious and quick to make!
I had a bit of problem with my fire roasted tomatoes where they were more of a puree than diced. Nonetheless, the sauce turned out wonderful.
