Cheesy Chicken Tortellini

"A favorite from Betty Crocker's Best-Loved Recipes. Omit the chicken and substitute additional red or yellow bell pepper for a vegetarian meal. I serve this yummy dish with warm crusty bread for dipping into the cheese sauce and a salad."

    I have made this many times, as I have the Betty Crocker cookbook that it's in. This is a very good recipe! I like the vegetarian adaptations listed by messie Chef and can't wait to try it that way!

    Very, very nice weeknight dinner! The flavors blended well. I added 1 1/2 chicken stock cube (1 cube makes 2 cups) for added flavor.


Although a stone's throw away from the Golden Dome at Notre Dame, I went to Michigan State and am a true, die hard Spartan. Dubbed by my husband as a "messie chef", I love to cook and try new recipes out on my family. I also have quite a cookbook collection and practically read them like novels. What can I say, I love food and appreciate all kinds. I love to sample regional favorites on various trips. I'm also a mom of 2 wonderful girls...5 and 2 years old. I love the Rachael Ray and OAMC concepts so I'm able to spend more time with my family. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <a href="¤t=tish1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a>
