A delicious creamy tortellini that comes together in under 30 minutes!
You guys!!! This Creamy Garlic Parmesan Cheese Tortellini is mouthwatering! My family was hooked on it the first time I made it. Creamy, garlicky, cheesy with crisp asparagus, sweet peas and of course bacon.
Seriously though, if you love pasta dinners as much as my family does. You need to check out my Spicy Italian Sausage Baked Ziti and my Baked Ravioli with Vodka Cream Sauce both are huge family favorites.
Dinner can be on the table in less than 30 minutes, which makes this a perfect weeknight meal. Yet is is amazing enough to serve to guests. You’ll be sure to put it on your weekly rotation.
The flavors of this dish are just to die for! I love asparagus with pasta, and then there is that little burst of sweetness with the peas. Plus of course everything is always better when there is bacon in it.
