A note about serious food allergies
Cheese tortellini goes with so many ingredients: fresh mint, orange juice, marshmallow fluff. (Wrong list. Those are the ingredients it doesn't go with.) But what it does go with? A slightly spicy and fiery sauce with ground pork and tomatoes, with a crunchy Parmesan layer on top. Sound better? Sounds delicious.
