Tortellini with Tomato Basil Sauce
This recipe serves: 4  
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
15 ounces chopped, canned tomatoes, undrained
12 ounces frozen cheese tortellini
1/4 cup chopped, fresh basil
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until well browned, about 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes and their juices and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Meanwhile, cook the tortellini until al dente, about 5 minutes. Drain and transfer into a large bowl. Toss with the tomato sauce and basil. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.

4. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
