Recipe by Hunts

Seasoned tomatoes, peas and bacon combined with cheese tortellini in a creamy sauce. While any bacon will work in this recipe, smoky thick-sliced bacon produces the best results. To substitute ham for the bacon, cook garlic in 1 tablespoon olive oil and add 1 cup diced ham with the tomatoes, tomato sauce and water. Recipe may be prepared with refrigerated tortellini in place of frozen. Use a 20-oz package and increase water to 1-1/4 cups.

Very simple, quick and tasty. I made fresh pumpkin puree for a pie today and had plenty of puree, so I substituted pumpkin for the tomato sauce and added extra little garlic, oregano and salt. Would be great with tomato sauce too, a keeper either way.
