Chicken Tortellini Alfredo

I often get home too late to cook a good, satisfying meal for my family, so I’m always looking for shortcuts that taste great. Here’s one we always enjoy. —Christie Wethington, Lexington, Kentucky

    I doubled the recipe and left out the carrots. It was really good, but I didnt add the amount of mushrooms the recipe required and I probably should have. In fact, my wife's preference on pasta is to let the vegetables dominate the dish with the pasta as a compliment. For those that share a similar palette, I think this dish is worthy. I would just double everything then but the pasta. Tortellini, in particular, is pretty heavy and you can get away with that approach with this dish. Oh, and I added a little salt to my plate while serving if that's your style.

    This turned out really well. The tortellini and pasta sauce give it a rich flavor and the dish tastes wonderful with fresh vegetables. But it's not quick and easy, especially if you are a busy mom. It took more time to make than anticipated.

    This is fantastic, I have used Egg Noodles, Penne or Rotini and added some Philly Herb & Garlic Cooking Cream Cheese. It is so good for leftovers too. Make this at least once a week and I am only one person eating it.

    Great idea, but this turned out just like the 'bag-o-meals' I buy as a backup when I have nothing to cook or just really don't care and need something to make. Ya know, those frozen dinners in a bag that you just throw on the stove top and cook for like 15 minutes and viola dinner is done for 2. So not too impressed with the recipe. It was also very bland in flavor. Not going to save this recipe.

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