Wednesday cheese tortellini

Wednesday we served cheese tortellini. We made a creamy tomato sauce as an option.
Perfectly steamed green beans were served as a side dish. These are naked save for a bit of salt.
Katherine made a treat in honor of the hundredth day of school..... chocolate cake.
Every bit of the yummy sauce was eaten before I could take a pic so instead of the picture I thought I would give the recipe for a quick sauce.

3-5 Tb. extra virgin olive oil
4 Tb minced garlic
2 (28 ounce) cans of good tomatoes chopped
4 ounces cream or 1/2 and 1/2
2 Tb dried Italian herbs

Add oil to a large saucepan, heat on medium add garlic, cook til garlic is golden about two minutes, but do not burn.
Stir in tomatoes, bring to a boil then turn down heat to a simmer for 20 minutes.
Add the cream and herbs stir until blended. Simmer til this thickens add salt and pepper to taste
