Wow! Amazing! Everyone inhaled it, even the ones who don't like some of the things in it! Tasted like Olive Garden came to our house tonight! With a side of garlic bread...perfect! Thank you.
I loved this recipe. I actually used it as a cold pasta salad after preparing. Everyone loved it. I sautéed the chicken with some garlic and veggie pepper. Did not have asparagus on hand so I used a can of chopped artichokes, in water and drained them. Sautéed them at the end of cooking the chicken. Mixed everything all together and chilled over night.
This was a huge hit at our party yesterday. I would give it five stars but did not follow exactly.
This recipe was fantastic! I was a little worried there wouldn't be enough pesto or tortellini but the ratio was perfect. This is a very healthy meal and well worth the hour it takes to make. Cheers
This was so delicious. All 4 kids and the husband loved it, and if there are no complaints at dinner time, it must be note-worthy! I had to use store-bought pesto, but it turned out great. We will be having this again!
This was my first tortellini dish I ever made and (embarrassing as it is to write) it was so insanely good! I couldn't wait to eat it for lunch then dinner, then lunch then dinner again! I didn't have the tomatoes or bell pepper, but it was still delish - I feel that this recipe would be great even if you had to improvise or add in your favorite veggies. Tasted even better when made ahead of time!
This recipe was awesome. My family loved the flavor. Did not make Pesto from scratch , used a good brand of Pesto in jar. (Didn't have the time.) Next time I will make the homemade. Also, next time I will try ground Italian sausage instead of chicken.
