Made this semi -homemade meal on the fly, getting ready for work. It was done in 50 minutes. While tortellini and rice cooked, I prepped the shredded cheeses and onion/pepper mixture. You can omit the Haberno cheese and add a full half cup of paremesan, but the amount is so small it's not really hot, just an under current of heat. I hope you like it if you decide to try it.

How to Make Herbed chicken Tortellini with Saffron Rice, Iris

Step-by-Step

  1. Gather all the ingredients. I used 2 skillets, one to prepare rice and one to boil tortellini.
  2. Prepare each according to the package directions. After boiling tortellini, drain, return to skillet and coat with olive oil.
  3. After rice is done, add diced onion and bell pepper to the rice with 1 stick of butter. Then add the basil and parsley, again mixing well
  4. Gently mix in the chicken tortellini, being careful not to break them up. If mixture is too tight, add some chicken stock to loosen it up . Serve with a garden salad or green veggie of your choice.
