    LUv 2 BaKE's Note:

    A flavourful cream cheese dip based sauce encasing plump cheese tortellini and a mixture of fresh vegetables. The original recipe called for chicken, but we have substituted shrimp and scallops many times, which makes it just as good. You may also omit the chicken/seafood to make it part of a vegetarian meal.

      This is a good recipe - like the other reviewers, I added some extra seasonings (garlic, onion powder, "All Mixed Up" seasoning blend) to boost the flavor. I will make this again, also tweaking it a bit. Thanks for sharing - made for PAC Spring 2008.

      This was ok. It's definitely missing something. Based on previous review, I added some more spices (onion powder, salt, pepper, parsley), but it was still so- so. This made a lot of sauce. We only used about 4 TBlsp. to mix in with the pasta. I will make it again, just have to figure out how to tweak it to give a more robust flavor. Thanks!

      This was quick, but a bit on the blah side for me. If I were to make it again, I'd probably add more [something--garlic, fresh herbs?] to the sauce, and use a few different cheeses (I just added parmesan to it this time). I used broccoli, mushrooms, and carrots--staples in the fridge, and followed the recipe except that I used two garlic cloves (pressed) when I cooked the chicken.
