  • Summary

    This is a quick, easy meal that's perfect for an evening when you just don't feel like eating meat. The sauce is different from a traditional red pasta sauce. It's light, fragrant and flavored with just enough butter and cream to give it a rich consistency without being heavy. Use a good brand of either dried or refrigerated tortellini to keep the dish light. Serve with a salad of field greens tossed with a lemon vinaigrette for a complete meal.

    Ingredients

    • 12-ounces cheese tortellini (see notes)
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 medium sweet onion, quartered and thinly sliced
    • 2 cloves garlic, very finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 2 cups diced tomatoes, undrained
    • 1/4 cup half-and-half
    • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped (see notes)
    • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
