Recipe by Starrynews

A great recipe from Kraft Food & Family, Winter 2008 edition (I just love that magazine!). I substituted sauteed green pepper and onion instead of the peas, as a personal preference, and it was great.

Definite five-stars from my six and three-year-old girls! They devoured this. It was crazy easy and fast which is what we are looking for on gymnastics night. I did make a bunch of substitutions with what I had on hand. I used canned peas (and only put them in the girls' bowls as I can't stand peas). Added a touch of garlic salt and some pepper. Didn't have mozzarella so I used "farmers cheese" from Sam's club along with Sam's cheese tortellini. Also, I didn't have bacon so I cut up some turkey sausage (yep, also from Sam's)and threw it in there. Used Neufchatel (low-fat cream cheese). Yum! Thanks so much for a great recipe.
