Creamy Tortellini with Spinach and Tomatoes

This is a recipe from Kraft Foods that I have used for a few years.  I usually make it when I have fresh spinach and tomatoes growing in my garden, yummy! My daughter likes most veggies, so she ate it no problem. My son won't eat the red things or the green stringy stuff, but when I make this and it has the tortellini in it and cream sauce he will eat the veggies.  If your kids just won't eat tomatoes and spinach, just substitute veggies they do like.  I have added grilled chicken to this. It is easy and very good, enjoy!
