Creamy Tortellini Carbonara sent in by Cathy Croyle calls for only five ingredients and comes together in mere moments. The Davidsville, Pennsylvania cook simmers a rich bacon and Parmesan cheese sauce in one pan while boiling packaged tortellini to perfection in another. Then she combines the two to create a memorable main dish. "Add more cheese or additional parsley to the sauce to fit your family's taste," Cathy recommends.
