Spinach Artichoke Tortellini

We had this for dinner tonight and my sweetheart thought it was spectacular.  Serve it with a salad and some french bread.  This is similar to the spinach artichoke dip everyone loves, only this time it is the sauce for some tortellini.  This is a great meal if you are looking for something quick, easy and sooo

1 pkg. spinach tortellini
1/2 c. frozen spinach, defrosted and drained of water
1/2 can artichokes, chopped
1/4 c. sour cream
1/4 c. milk or cream
1 T. butter
1 clove of garlic, chopped
4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese
pinch or red pepper flakes
Melt butter in saucepan.  Add garlic and cook about 2 minutes.  While this is going, put your water on to boil in another pan for your tortellini.  Add tortellini when the water boils and cook for 12 minutes.  Drain. 
Back to the sauce:  add cream cheese and milk to the pan with the garlic.  Whisk until smooth.  Add in the sour cream, spinach, artichokes, Parmesan cheese, red pepper, and lemon juice.  Whisk well.  Mix
the tortellini and sauce together and serve.
