Ingredients

  • 1 package Tortellini 250 grams (ref note 1)
  • 200 grams Boneless Chicken Breast Cut into cubes (ref note 2)
  • 6-7 Bacon
  • 1/2 cup Sundried Tomatoes Oil drained
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon Garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried Basil
  • 1/2 Onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Cream
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Pasta cooking water (more if required)

Instructions

  • Bring a pot of water to boil, season with salt. Cook pasta as per package instruction.
  • While pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a large skillet.
  • When the oil is hot, add chicken cubes, season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until chicken is browned and just cooked through, 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan; cover with foil and keep aside.
  • Clean pan if any brown bits are stuck, because we don't want the sauce to look brown.
  • Add chopped bacon, cook until crispy. Remove bacon from the pan and keep aside. Discard bacon fat.
  • Add butter to the pan. When butter melts add minced garlic and onion. Saute until the onion softens and raw garlic smell has disappeared.
  • Stir in sun-dried tomatoes. Cook for a minute.
  • Lower the heat and add cream, Parmesan cheese to the pan.
  • Drain tortellini and reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
  • Add cooked tortellini, chicken and Bacon to the pan. Add 1/2 cup of reserved pasta water to the pan.
  • Mix everything gently and let it cook for another 1 minute on low heat.
  • Remove from flame and serve topped with more parmesan on top.

Notes

  • I have used Fresh Spinach Ricotta Tortellini from the refrigerator section. You can also use Packaged Dry Tortellini from the pasta section. Cook the pasta as per packege instruction. 
  • Use the equivalent quantity of leftover cooked chicken or Rotisserie chicken instead of Chicken breast.
