Tortellini and Marinara Sauce

(originally made 1/2006)

Found this in Cooking Light's 5 Star recipes. Quick and easy. I only made one pkg of pasta, and will use the left over sauce for mini pizzas tomorrow. Definitely a keeper in our house!

*I used the Barilla Three Cheese Tortellini (available with the boxed pasta)
*I used basil, oregano and some crushed red pepper to taste instead of the italian seasoning
