1 (16 ounce) package cheese tortellini1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with garlic and onion1 cup chopped fresh spinach1/2 tsp salt1/4 tsp pepper1 1/2 tsp dried basil1 tsp minced garlic2 tbs all-purpose flour3/4 cup milk3/4 cup heavy cream1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the tortellini, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.
While you get the tortellini going, combine the tomatoes, spinach, salt, pepper, basil and garlic in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture begins to bubble.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, milk and cream. Stir this mixture into the saucepan along with the Parmesan cheese. Heat through, then reduce heat to low, and simmer until thick, about 2 minutes.
Drain the tortellini, but do not rinse, then pour them into the saucepan with the sauce. Stir to coat, and serve.
