Lets just say, your local Italian restaurant would be quickly out of business if it served this dish.  The concept sounded good, the ingredients were there, but the execution didn’t work out – just like some Sunday NFL games.  The tortelloni came out unevenly cooked, ranging between tough to mushy.  The cheese filling was just okay.  Read that as not very flavorful.  The tomatoes varied from okay to mushy.  The red pesto including bits of red pepper, zucchini and whatnot was the best part.  There was very little liquid to the sauce, if that’s what you’re expecting.
