Herby, cheesy tortellini dunked in a peppy mixed vegetables Schezwan sauce, this is a treat to remember forever! These tortellini are fabulous, made with a herb-laced plain flour dough and stuffed with cheese before cooking.


The story gets all the more interesting with the Oriental style topping, made with juicy veggies and peppy sauces. You can prepare the sauce beforehand, and re-heat it just before pouring over the tortellini. Enjoy the Herb Tortellini in Mixed Vegetables Schezwan Sauce piping hot!
