Chicken and Tortellini with Tomato Cream Sauce Recipe
Hello foodies! Hope everyone is having a great week so far! It's been quiet at our house this week, which is great compared to the hectic last few weeks we've had. My cousin and I went to get pedicures together today. That relaxation was MUCH needed! I also got some really wonderful news earlier today, but I will let you all know what's going on with that, within the next couple months! Lots of huge changes have been going on in our life, and my daughter and I are so excited for this amazing opportunity we've been offered.
Today's recipe turned out so fantastic! I was staying at my sister's house for the weekend, and her husband made this for us. I love creamy tomato sauces, and the spinach and chicken goes so well with it. I love that he used tortellini instead of regular pasta. This recipe has tons of flavor and you will leave the table feeling completely satisfied!
Thanks to my sister, Shannon who blogs over at Speaking in Plain Shamish for taking the photos for this post!
