Delicious and very indulgent. I used less cream and more chicken stock but still came out great!

We really did not like this. My husband wouldn't even eat it. Very disappointing. Way too much cream for 8 ounces of tortellini. The garlic added first was just waiting to be burned cooking with the kale for 3 to 4 minutes. The cream never really thickened up. I just really didn't like it at all.

My husband and I really liked this; even our picky toddlers were pleased! We had some fresh pine nuts on hand which I bought on a whim from a local grower, and I was glad to have a recipe in which to utilize them. We substituted half and half in place of cream, toasted the nuts in a frying pan to save time, and used bagged, pre-chopped kale. It turned out fantastic- very rich and filling, and easy to make (with the exception of shelling all those tiny little nuts, but for only half a cup, even that wasn't too bad). The meal had a gourmet feel without a lot of work, and I will definitely be making it again.
