Cheesy Chicken Tortellini Bake

from the Pampered Chef “Stoneware Inspirations” cookbook

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c. chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 jar alfredo sauce (I use light)
  • 2 packages (9 oz. each) refrigerated cheese-filled regular or spinach tortellini (I use spinach tortellini from Aldi)
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 cup milk (I use skim)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup bread crumbs (I use whole wheat)

How to

  1. Preheat oven to 400. For pasta mixture, heat oil over medium-high heat in large pot. Add onion and garlice. Cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in alfredo, tortellini, chicken, milk, water, peas and pepper. Heat until mixture just comes to a boil; remove from heat. Stir basil into pasta mixture.
  2. Meanwhile, for crumb topping, mix parmesan, melted butter and bread crumbs.
  3. Spoon pasta mixture into a 9×11 pyrex dish; sprinkle with crumb topping. Bake 15-20 minutes or until edges are bubbly and topping is golden brown.
