    So, I had a package of cheese tortellini I had bought and didn't use yet so I decided to get creative tonight and "created" a recipe.

    Parmesan Garlic Tortellini with Tomatoes

    1 lb. 4 oz. package of cheese tortellini
    1 pint grape tomatoes
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1 T basil
    1 T Parmesan Garlic Seasoning
    1 T sugar

    Cook tortellini per package instructions.
    Chop grape tomatoes using salad choppers.
    Mix tortellini, grape tomatoes, olive oil, basil, Parmesan Garlic Seasoning and sugar.
    Stir and enjoy!

    Either! I ate it warm, but I plan on some for tomorrow cold. I think it tastes best warmed though.

    My brother told me he uses the Garlic Parmesan seasoning with asparagus. He wraps it all up in foil with a bit of oil and throws it on the grill.

    Sounds delicious. I have some sweet little tomatoes from the garden and some tortellini in the freezer. I'll have to make this sometime soon.

    Wow, you are all set! You can go with or without the sugar, depending on your taste and/or tomatoes. I like a little "sweetness" in my sauces, etc. and not a totally bitter taste.

    I put about 1/2 TBSP of the seasoning in with the Penne Pasta recipe after I add the chicken...love it...and I sell a ton of the seasoning because of this (you can also use the tomato one if you want)

    I will have to try this sometime.

    My husband was making homemade venision summer sausage, and he added the parmesan/garlic seasoning to the meat mixture. Just had a piece of the sausage tonight and it was so yummy!

    Speaking of hunting, a friend emailed me a copy of a newspaper column. It's one of those columns where people call or email to leave a message of a line or two. I've heard them called let it out" or shout out columns. It said:
    Yes, the area that's bold in my quote was bold in the newspaper. My friend added his concern that this person probably votes and may have already procreated.

    I've been sharing that thing with so many people. It just cracks me up. You can hear the indignation in her (it just has to be a girl) voice.
