Chicken Tortellini Pasta

reece solorio


I first had this at a hotel restaurant a few years ago and have been trying to find a recipe for it ever since. This one I adapted from by adding chicken, and made for the first time tonight. I've already been requested to make it again! It is uh-maze-ing!! :)

How to Make Chicken Tortellini Pasta


  1. Make sure to cook tortellini and chicken first and set aside. I used pre-cut grilled chicken strips that take about 10 minutes in the skillet. Same for the tortellini
  2. Blend the chicken granules, basil, 2 teaspoons parsley, and pepper into the crushed tomatoes
  3. Saute the garlic in olive oil then add the tomato mixture and bring to a simmer. Add cream and bring to a gentle boil. Add the 4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and stir well.
  4. Stir the tortellini and chicken into the sauce. If desired, serve garnished with more parsley and/or parmesan cheese
