Tortellini with tomato cream sauce

Cooking is not something that has taken place this week! We've been too busy enjoying the summer. I finally made dinner last night for a family that goes to our church. Hope none of them were on a diet!
3 cheese tortellini with homemade tomato cream sauce and fresh basil, and garlic cheese bread.

Tortellini with tomato cream sauce:
12 oz tortellini
1 large can tomatoes (diced or whole cut into pieces. I prefer whole tomatoes cut into chunks, but apparently I grabbed the diced this time)
3 cloves garlic, minced. (About 1 1/2 teaspoons)
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 1/2 cups cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
fresh basil
Italian seasoning
fresh parmesan

Cook onion and garlic in some olive oil for a few minutes, until the onion is soft. Drain tomatoes and dump tomatoes into your pan with the onions and garlic. Add cream, salt and basil. Simmer while you cook your tortellini according to directions on package. Drain and toss together with tomato cream sauce. Add lots of parmesan cheese!!

I served it with garlic cheese bread. I love the sourdough bread at Costco and just spread each piece with garlic butter and parmesan. Then I put the whole loaf back together, wrapped it in aluminum foil and baked at 350 for about 15 minutes.
