    Simple, perfect for a weeknight. Needs some seasonings, but otherwise, a keeper! Used refrigerated tortellini......I like those better than frozen.

    Very tasty. I added 2 garlic cloves, a celery stalk, broccoli, and 5 large mushrooms to the sauce....trying to get in my vegetables for my family.

    Hubby hates tomatoes, so I added my own alfredo sauce instead. He loved it. Will make again.

    Definitely a will make again dinner! Quick easy with very little prep and the kids were able to help make it and loved it! Added some Meditteranean seasonings to the chicken when cooking for a little flair, but the dish was worth 5 stars for sure!

    I made this dish last night for dinner and it was a hit! After cooking it for a few minutes on the stove I put it in the oven to bake for 10 minutes. This made the mozzarella cheese crispy and delicious. I will serve this again and again, thanks for the recipe.

    For some weird reason, frozen tortellini doesn't exist in three Charlotte, NC, food store chains, so I substituted mini ravioli. Made my own seasoned sauce and served with Parm. & shredded cheddar. It is a nice, quick entree. If you feel so inclined, put out a bag salad & you're done!
