Cook the tortellini according to the package instructions, and while tortellini are cooking, steam or boil asparagus to the desired crispiness. Cook the chicken in olive oil and Italian seasoning, then combine all the ingredients (including chopped cooked bacon) in a large skillet:

Creamy Chicken, Asparagus, and Bacon Tortellini

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Creamy Chicken, Asparagus, and Bacon Tortellini


  • 2 cups of tortellini, uncooked
  • 1/2 pound asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb chicken breast, chopped
  • Italian seasoning
  • salt
  • 8 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. Cook tortellini according to the package instructions, and then drain.
  2. While the tortellini is cooking, cook the asparagus as you prefer: steam it or boil it in hot water. I boiled it quickly in hot water to the desired crispiness. Drain.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add chopped chicken breast, sprinkle it generously with salt and Italian seasoning and cook the chicken, occasionally stirring, until it is completely cooked through.
  4. In the skillet where you just cooked chicken, combine cooked tortellini, cooked asparagus, cooked chicken, and 2/3 of the amount of chopped cooked bacon (reserving the rest of the bacon for later).
  5. Add heavy cream. Bring to boil and boil for 1-2 minutes, occasionally stirring. Sauce should thicken. Add shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired, and stir it in, while the sauce is boiling. Remove from heat.
  6. Top with the remaining chopped cooked bacon and serve.
