Creamy Herb Chicken Tortellini (Or Shrimp/Scallops, or Meatless)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by LUv 2 BaKE

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.
