1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Add 10 cups water and 1 tbsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then thinly slice shallot. Roughly chop spinach.

2

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then shallots and peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper.

3

Add tortellini to the boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 2-3 min. Reserve 2/3 cup pasta water. Drain and return tortellini to the same pot, off heat.

4

Sprinkle Cream Sauce Blend over veggies. Cook, stirring constantly, until veggies are coated, 30 sec. Add pesto, cream, reserved pasta water and half the Parmesan. Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 min. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper.

5

Cut or crumble bacon into 1/2-inch pieces. Add spinach, sauce and half the bacon to the pot with tortellini. Stir until spinach wilts, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Divide tortellini between bowls. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan.
