Chicken Meatballs With Tortellini in Mushroom Cream Sauce

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 20 mins

My husband can't eat tomato-based sauces, so I was trying to come up with something for him to eat when we eat spaghetti. This was it -- the kids even liked it and hubby had to fight them for it! I didn't actually measure the amounts for the meatballs, except the chicken and egg, but I think these are pretty close. I prepared the meatballs earlier in the day, so this was easy to toss together at dinnertime.

We thoroughly enjoyed DS doesn't really like tomato-based sauces, so I was pleased to find something that I thought he would enjoy. Very easy to make, and lots of flavour. Will definitely be making this again :-)

Made half a recipe but this was so good. Had chicken meatballs in the freezer so used those. Was an easy and quick recipe. Topped with croutons. YUM!

I thought this was just okay, the meatballs were yummy, however it was way to saucy for me, I think if I made it again, I would not add the tortellini to the sauce, I would serve the sauce over top of the the tortellini.
