DIRECTIONS

  • Slice bacon into thin strips (1/2 - 1 inches in width). Separate slices and place into a preheated frying pan.
  • While bacon is browning, prepare the tortellini's according to the package's directions. When the tortellini's are fully cooked, run under cool water, drain, and set aside to cool.
  • When the bacon is fully cooked, carefully drain the grease and spread the bacon pieces onto paper towels to remove excess grease. Set aside to cool.
  • Slice the tomatoes in half.
  • In a large bowl, combine the tortellini's, bacon, tomatoes, cheese and ranch dressing. Stir to combine.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least one hour, but as much as 2 days.
  • When ready to serve, you may add the extra ranch dressing if you wish.
