Tortellini as a Quick Meal

Tortellini (used in this month's recipe) often is available in grocery stores in the refrigerator section. Cook as the package directs and serve with spaghetti sauce for a quick meal. Buy extra and freeze for easy weeknight meals. To freeze and use within two months, place the original package in the freezer. If freezing for longer than two months, place the package in a freezer bag to prevent freezer burn. Using a permanent marker, label the bag with the date of freezing.
