Notes

Tortellini are ring-shaped pasta, you can find them at any grocery market and usually come in different filling options, such as cheese, spinach, lobster, butternut squash, etc. For this recipe, I used Tortellini spinach. 
You may substitute an equal amount of heavy cream for half-and-half or milk.  Heavy creams contain more fat than half-and-half-creams and also more resistant to curdling, so they are a better choice in soups and sauces.
