Tortellini Stir Fry

Would you like to know what makes this recipe Ta-Daa?  It is easy!  I seek out easy recipes.  If there are 8 million steps or a bunch of ingredients I wouldn't know where to find in the grocery store then I pass over it.  This one had my name written all over it.

Hubs and my oldest child rated it a 5 and kept going back for more
I rated it a 4
The other 2...well, it was food that was touching each other AND had sauce on it.  How dare I?

1 (9oz) package of tortellini
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 (16 oz) package of frozen stir-fry vegetables
1/3 cup stir fry sauce (I used a sesame-garlic sauce)
2 Tbs. water
1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper (optional)
2 Tbs. chopped unsalted cashews or peanuts (I did not use)

Prepare tortellini according to package directions.
