Tortellini with Pomodoro Sauce

3 slices of bacon chopped

1 medium onion chopped

3 cloves of garlic pressed

1/2 cup chopped fresh basil

1/2 cup chicken stock, more if pan seems dry

1 32 ounce can diced tomatoes

1 16 ounce can diced tomatoes

1 16 ounce package of prepared tortellini any flavor I used 4 cheese

In a chef’s pan or skillet cook the bacon for about 2 minutes until fat is beginning to render.  Add the chopped onion to the pan and cook until clear about 5 minutes, add garlic and cook 1 minute more.  Ad remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer.  Simmer lid off for 5-15 minutes until tortellini is desired tenderness.  Add more liquid if pan gets dry.

About Lorie Fangio

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger. Finding time to spend together as a family unit can be difficult especially with dual family careers and children that are often hyper scheduled. My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
