Personaly I think it depends on the kind tortellini you're making.

You are what you eat.

One suggestion is tortellini primavera. An easy sauce - add softened *cream cheese with onions & chives to a saucepan, & gradually stir in half and half or milk. Stir & heat through. Add some red pepper flakes if you wish. Toss the cooked drained tortellini with the sauce, add in veggies of choice (asparagus, peas, broccoli, halved cherry, grape, pear or sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, carrots, roasted sweet red peppers, diced ham or pancetta, etc), sprinkle with fresh torn basil & fresh Parmesan cheese.

*If you can find cream cheese with salmon, that might be an interesting sauce (w half and half or milk).

Another way to go, is a cold pasta salad, i.e. tortellini Caprese. Toss the tortellini with Italian vinaigrette dressing, add tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh torn basil - & slivers of garlic, if you like.
