Rated 4 out of 5 by from This recipe was easy, quick, and delicious. This recipe was easy, quick, and delicious. I made a few changes. I added one skinless, boneless chicken breast (cut up in small bite-size pieces)and used 10 ounces of the refrigerated Alfredo sauce. After cooking the bacon and draining off the grease, I browned the chicken then continued with the recipe. I forgot to thaw the peas beforehand so I just added them to the tortellini and cooked for about two minutes. Scrumptious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious and easy, with a couple of additions. Delicious and easy, with a couple of additions. Added fresh mushrooms, doubled the amount of tortellini, and used a whole jar of a good Alfredo sauce plus one container of Philly Italian Herb cooking creme. This added great flavor. Also used more parmesan than called for and added some shaved Asiago cheese at the end. Family gobbled it up and 12-year old niece even asked for the recipe!
