Cheese Tortellini With Basil Cream Sauce

I found this recipe inside the package of basil, from HerbThyme, that I bought. Sounds to yummy not to share.

2 Shallots, minced
2 Cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp flour
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup white wine
1 1/4 cups cream
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 pkg (2/3 oz) Basil, chopped
2 - 9 ounce packages fresh cheese filled tortellini, cooked and drained

In a medium saucepan, saute shallots and garlic in butter until softened. Add flour; cook and stir one minute. Stir in wine; cook one minute more. Slowly add cream, mixing until smooth. Add cheese; cook over medium heat until smooth and thick. Add fresh Basil; mix well and pour over hot, cooked tortellini. Garnish with Fresh Basil leaves. Serves 4-6.
