Ready In:




  • Fry the bacon till crunchy so it can be crumbled into bacon bits.
  • Drain of the bacon fat and cook the boneless skinless chicken breasts in the same pan, add seasonings to taste. I like to add a bit of garlic powder and paprika.
  • When cool, crumble the bacon and cut the chicken into bite size pieces.
  • You can put this in the fridge till later in the day or use right away.
  • Put on a large pot of water to boil when it has reached the boiling point add the tortellini, while cooking chop up the green onion and fresh mushrooms.
  • Once tortellini is cooked drain off the water, add 2 packages 4 cheese pasta sauce, the cooked chicken, bacon bits, green onion and mushrooms, simmer on low heat for approx 20 min or until the sauce is warmed through. You will need to stir often so the pasta does not stick to the bottom.
  • Serve hot, this recipe will make 4-6 good size portions.

I cook ( other than regular meals ) for fun and when the mood moves me. I enjoy baking but where I live and maybe due to the oven I really suck at baking cookies. Christmas is my favortie time of year for making yummy things but summer is the best season of all as I try to BBQ everything I can. I am pretty new to making pies but have found a great recipe here called Moms Souper Easy Pie Pastry. My goal is to get my daughter to eat actual food other than just spaghetti!! lol
