This creamy tortellini Alfredo is a cinch to make. And cooking the pasta and sauce in the same pot without draining the broth is a great time saver, too!

Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Bring broth and water to boil in large saucepan on medium-high heat. Add pasta; stir. Cover; simmer on medium-low heat 8 to 9 min. or until pasta is tender. (Do not drain.)
  • Stir in cream cheese and peas; cook, uncovered, 2 to 3 min. or until cream cheese is completely melted, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in shredded cheese and bacon.
* Made with quality cheeses crafted in the USA.

Substitute

Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.

Variation

Substitute 4 cups firmly packed fresh baby spinach leaves for the peas, and stir in 1/4 cup drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes with the shredded cheese.

How to Warm the Pasta Serving Bowl

Few things lose heat faster than hot cooked pasta served in a cold bowl. To help keep cooked pasta hot, preheat the serving bowl by pouring hot water into the empty bowl and letting it stand for a minute to warm up. Drain water and fill with cooked pasta just before serving.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was easy enough but not that tasty. It was easy enough but not that tasty. I added in some garlic powder when it was done. I did use the sundried tomatoes in oil as someone suggested. That was good! The garlic powder did make it tastier and next time I will try some red pepper flakes I think! I used tri colored pasta and it was very pretty! Overall, quick and easy! Just needs some flavors added in. I think broccoli would work well also!

I knew my grandkids would love this its pasta! Wrong. The family rated this a 6 out of 10. It was "glumpy", no sauce, flavor was good, but needed saucyness. I would definately leave off the Italian 5 cheese, it gets stringy which makes it hard to serve with the long cheese threads. I will not make this again.

I thought this was a very good recipe but we decided to add chicken chunks to make a meal (protein). Although we thought it was very good, there wasn't enough sauce to make it really creamy. Next time we'll either do 1 1/2 of the sauce recipe or double it. Very tasty though! We also added 1 1/2 cups of peas and it was really good. We love our peas! Thanks for the really good recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is a keeper. This recipe is a keeper. I used 3 cheese tortellini, packaged real bacon bits (which add a smoky flavor) and served the peas on the side since I don't care for peas but my husband loves them. I also will make a little extra sauce the next time and possibly add sun dried tomatoes. It definitely was not soupy, but very creamy. I thought the recipe lived up to its name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this dish a few nights ago. I made this dish a few nights ago. It was a huge hit with my family and really really easy. I did change a few things up like used homemade chicken broth instead of the canned stuff and added some milk and extra cheese at the end. Also added 3/4 cup of white wine to the sauce and let the alcohol cook out. Next time will add more veggies 1 cup is hardly noticeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My motto is "I never met a recipe I did not change"! My motto is "I never met a recipe I did not change"! This is no exception. This is a GREAT recipe. To make it a more complete meal, I added the following ingredients: 1# chicken tenders diced & browned, 10 oz. peas and carrots, 8 oz. Neufchtel creme cheese,and 2 c. Italian Blend cheese. It made enough for 4 generous servings, and lunches!

This was pretty good, but I found that the sauce needs quite a bit of seasoning - something that Kraft tends to leave off every recipe. I would definitely not skip the peas - that bright punch of sweetness was definitely needed. I substituted turkey bacon, but would definitely use the real thing if I ever made this again.

It was too soupy for me by following the directions so I mixed in a little flour mixed with water and cooked it for a little while longer and then it was the perfect consistency! I'd also recommend adding in a few spices to give it a little more flavor.
