Cheesy Chicken Tortellini

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Messie Chef

A favorite from Betty Crocker's Best-Loved Recipes. Omit the chicken and substitute additional red or yellow bell pepper for a vegetarian meal. I serve this yummy dish with warm crusty bread for dipping into the cheese sauce and a salad.

I have made this many times, as I have the Betty Crocker cookbook that it's in. This is a very good recipe! I like the vegetarian adaptations listed by messie Chef and can't wait to try it that way!
