  1. Cook bacon in large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-low heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, drain and discard all but 1 tablespoon drippings. Add garlic to drippings; cook 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  2. Add undrained tomatoes, tomato sauce and water; stir. Bring to a boil over high heat; stir in tortellini. Return to a boil; cover and simmer over medium-low heat 6 minutes or until tortellini is tender, stirring gently after 3 minutes.
  3. Add cream cheese; stir until completely melted. Stir in bacon and peas. Return to a boil; simmer 2 minutes. Sprinkle liberally with pepper, if desired.

Cook's Tip

While any bacon will work in this recipe, smoky thick-sliced bacon produces the best results. To substitute ham for the bacon, cook garlic in 1 tablespoon olive oil and add 1 cup diced ham with the tomatoes, tomato sauce and water. Recipe may be prepared with refrigerated tortellini in place of frozen. Use a 20-oz package and increase water to 1-1/4 cups.

We had to wait several months to get to the big city to buy the ingredients, it it was with the wait.

I made this with ravioli and it was decent. Take out a little tomato juice next time and use it as needed.

I made this last week, it was phenomenally easy and great tasting! A awesome splurge to your menu. I used at least 2 tablespoons of Garlic

Teri, this recipe is so full of processed food that I don't know how the items could be expired. Many of the 4 and 5 star reviews are very similar. Delicious, delish, my husband, and more.

My family does not like chunks of tomato so we modified this recipe slightly and loved it! We used only the tomato sauce but used two cans. We also used plain cream cheese because my husband detests all things onion. Finally, we used chicken prosciutto tortellini.

Disgusting. Truly. Fry up the bacon, make some nice BLT's or have it with some eggs. This recipe made me jealous for my dog's Liv-A-Snaps.
