Chicken & Prosciutto Tortelloni

The Chef picked up two 9oz. packages of Chicken and Prosciutto Tortelloni from the refrigerated case at my local 99c only Store last week. The Tortelloni is subtly flavored, so a light tomato sauce is an ideal accompaniment.

The 99c only Store always has pasta sauce, from Organic crushed tomatoes to Name Brand pasta sauce.

He likes to add olive oil and a fine 99 cent French Cabernet Sauvignon to deepen the flavor of the pasta sauce.

(serves 3 to 4)
2 packages of Tortelloni (about 9 ounchs each)
1 large 28 oz. can of pasta sauce
1/2 cup red wine
2 tablespoons of olive oil
salt & pepper to taste

Start 8 cups water to boil the Tortelloni. In a pan, add a large can (28 oz.) of tomato sauce, 1/2 cup red wine and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Simmer the sauce at medium heat the length of time it takes to prepair the Tortelloni. Follow directions for cooking Tortelloni (low boil for about 10 minutes.) Drain and plate with pasta sauce.
