Torts in Mascarpone Sauce


  • 1 medium red onion, or 1/2 of a large one, chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • Oregano
  • Salt
  • 2 cans (400g each) chopped tomatoes with liquid
  • 140g of tomato puree
  • A bunch of fresh basil
  • 250g fresh spinach
  • 25-50g of butter
  • 3 heaping spoonfuls of mascarpone
  • 1 pack ready made tortellini


  1. In a large pot saute onions until soft
  2. Add the garlic and herbs, and saute on a very low heat for 1-2 minutes until fragrant
  3. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, salt. Cook for 5 minutes, until bubbling.
  4. Bring to a boil, and then simmer for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring often, until the sauce has thickened up. If it goes too dry, add some water.
  5. Now add spinach, basil and butter, and stir over a low heat until it's cooked down.
  6. Finally, stir in the mascarpone until melted. You should have a deliciously thick, creamy sauce.
  7. Cook the tortellini as instructed on the pack
