Substitution
Any color of bell pepper can be used. Why not try a combination of red, yellow and green?
Special Touch
If you have fresh basil in your garden, go ahead and substitute it for the parsley.
Special Touch
Spoon the tortellini mixture into a shallow serving bowl, and sprinkle with a little shredded Parmesan cheese before adding the parsley. Then add a couple of fresh parsley sprigs to the side of the dish.
