The weather is a little chilly so the time is right for hot, creamy, stick to your ribs food. We had some left over cheese stuffed tortellini in the freezer that I didn’t know what to do with. This is what I came up with and I am so glad it came together better than I expected.
2 chicken breasts
4 slices bacon
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup water
2 cups uncooked tortellini
pinch of cayenne or chipotle pepper just for depth of flavor (optional)
Cook until sauce has thickened and tortellini is cooked through.
Left overs can be reheated in a skillet over low heat with a splash of milk to loosen things up.
This is what I got to enjoy while eating. My baby pouting because I didn’t make an extra slice of bacon for him. He is on a diet and still trying to lose those last two pounds, so no bacon for him. How sad he looks and then he gets extra attention later because I feel guilty. His is a genius!
