      The bacon taste was a bit strong for me, next time I think I'll cut down, but otherwise it was very delish. We'll definitely make this again.

      I was really hoping for a more creamy sauce and more flavor. This was way too much work and way too expensive for the lack of flavor, just all around bad and I followed the recipe to a T. I will not be making this again.

      Also I feel like the recipe should state DRY tortelloni, as someone that has been cooking for a very long time 21 years now, I figured it out, but a novice would not have known that.

      Fabulous recipe. I was able to finally replace my electronic pressure cooker so I'm on the hunt again for good/great cooker recipes. I enjoyed the subtle, yet somewhat savory, flavour of the tarragon/parsley. We don't like real rich dishes so this was perfect with the broth/cream combination. As always I sub'd yogurt for the milk/cream & cut back the butter considerably. For the onion we used some green ones along with chopped leeks. Did 1 3/4 lb chicken breasts & it was a good balance between pasta/vegys & meat for us. Thanks so much for sharing.
