How to Make Skillet Tortellini with Spinach

Did I mention this recipe is EASY? It really only takes 2 steps and you’re done!

First, heat the olive oil in a non-stick sauté pan, then add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant. Stir in the tomatoes and heavy cream and heat until the mixture starts to bubble.
