Quick and Easy: Roast Red Pepper Tortellini

As a working mother, I am always looking for quick and easy dinner recipes.  I came up with this one tonight to give a new twist to tortellini - Roasted Red Pepper Tortellini

-Frozen or refrigerated tortellini 
-1 jar roasted red peppers
-1/3 cup of milk (I used low fat)
-1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
-1 fresh red pepper
-1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

Prepare tortellini as instructed on the package.  Meanwhile, place the jar of roasted red peppers, milk, and shredded cheese and crushed red pepper in a blender or food processor and blend.  Once blending is complete, put the mixture into a bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes (until warm).  When tortellini is done cooking, dish into bowls and top with roasted red pepper sauce.  Top with additional cheese and crushed red pepper to taste.
