Alfredo Tortellini is a quick and easy meal that can be ready in 15 mins or less for those nights when you’ve only got 30 minutes to prepare it and eat dinner before you have rush back out to take your obnoxious, degenerate of a dog to obedience school. Like tonight.

The rich, creamy sauce makes Alfredo Tortellini one of my favorite meals.

    I made this for a dinner & my daughter (12) who loves this @ Panera. Well to be honest she thought it was quite rich, even after I put a cut up chicken breast in. In my opinion the recipe could use some tweaking, again this is just my opinion.

    Fast and easy to make. No crazy ingredients. Delicious. And definitely going into our rotation. Thank you so much. I do agree with Sheena though, I thought using the whole packet was a little much so next time will be using less of that, maybe adding some pepper. Other than that wouldn’t change a thing! Good stuff!

    I’m also trying your guys’ Chicken Enchiladas this week, bet it will be just as yummy…can’t wait!

    I Love this recipe!!! It’s so easy to make and so good. I did add chicken instead of ham and the second time I made it I only used half a packet of the Italian(The first time I thought it was a little too strong.) Thankyou so much for all of your wonderful recipes and your great fonts!

    Okay so I tried, this recipie, but it came out really salty tasting. I think it was the ham, I used sliced ham (cut into squares), and my mom thought 1 cup of ham wasn’t enough so we doubled it – just the ham. So what I’m wondering is – was it the ham? Or did I do something wrong? (Though, the rest of the recipie I followed to a tee)
