Ingredients

  • 2 cups tortellini , uncooked
  • ½ pound asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb chicken breast , chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 8 slices bacon , cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese , shredded

Instructions

  • Cook tortellini according to the package instructions, and then drain.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • In the skillet where you just cooked chicken, combine cooked tortellini, cooked asparagus, cooked chicken, and ⅔ of the amount of chopped cooked bacon (reserving the rest of the bacon for later).
  • 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.
  • Top with the remaining chopped cooked bacon and serve.
