      Five stars for ease of prep! This is a nice creamy pasta dish, that went together super quick and easy. Made ours with a mix of both spinach and regular cheese tortellini, along with leftover balsamic chicken tenders and sugar snap peas (from last nights dinner), and sprinkled with sliced green onions over the top. Thought it would be nice with a little salt & pepper or maybe some lemon thyme added, may try that next time. We enjoyed with a glass of chilled chardonnay. Thanks AZ!
