Cheese Tortellini and Creamy Tomato Sauce

This is the easiest and fastest creamy tomato sauce that you can use with any pasta. I don't remember where I got the recipe from, but it's very versatile, and you can make a lot of changes to it. Such as adding leftover roasted vegetables.

If you want, you can add some white or red wine to the sauce while simmering, I always add a little bit.

You don't necessarily have to use cheese tortellini, try different fillings. This is a great weeknight meal, with great leftovers. Enjoy:)
