It was really good, but I think next time, I'll do more tortellini and less onion.

This was out of this world. I used a 12 oz pkg of cheese tortellini. Next time, I will cut the onion smaller. No other changes are needed to be made.

This was so yummy! It has excellent flavor! I added some salt and pepper to the veggies and the meat in addition to the seasonings called for. My husband gave it the thumbs up!

This recipe sounds good but 3/4 pound of chicken doesn't sound like enough protein for 6 servings. I'd probably add more.
