Thursday's Recipe Swap Meet ~ Tortellini with Bacon


OK... we know you have all these recipes that you love to make. You got them from your mother, your grandmother, a magazine, or maybe you made it up, perhaps you don't even remember where the recipe came from. Well, how about sharing them with all of us? We are going to share ours with you every Thursday!

My good friend and (according to her husband) excellent cook, Dolly over at XmasDolly and I are now doing a recipe swap; we want to share ours with you and wold LOVE to get some of your favorites as well... So welcome to Thursday's Recipe Swap Meet, here is all you have to do:


Post a recipe on your blog, sign the linky on either blog (they will be linked), grab our new button - isn't she cute - hubby says she looks like me... TeeHee? (above, on my sidebar and on my Co-Chef Dolly's blog) and check out the recipes. Don't forget that each week you actually will be getting at least TWO for the price of ONE because both Dolly and I will post a recipe on each of our blogs. How simple is that???

Tortellini with Bacon

Cook about a pound of fresh or frozen tortellini according to package directions while you are preparing the bacon topping.

Cut up 6 slices of bacon (I used 8 because I was making extra for the doggies) and saute them in 2 Tbls. of EVOO until half cooked.

Add 3 cloves of garlic (I like to grate it in because I don't like big chunks in it) and saute it with the bacon until they are both lightly brown.

Deglaze the pan with about 1/4 cup of dry white wine. Then add the following spices to taste: salt, pepper, basil and oregano. Next add 1 stick of butter and saute all flavors together - about 5 minutes.

Add tortellini to pan and turn over to coat each piece with the bacon, butter and spices.

Serve with grated cheese if desired... Bill likes it, I don't.

This received 6 out of 6 puppy tail wags... I knew the doggies would like the bacon, what I didn't know was that they would LOVE the tortellini. I swear they are part Italian. =)

So now all you have to do is sign our linky so we all can find your recipes. You check out all ours and we will check out all yours. If you don't want to write it all down and you know of one on line just post a link to it on your blog or leave it in a comment if you prefer!

For more recipes, head on over to Ms.BiBi at Daily Organized Chaos.

Let's get cooking..... Bon Appetit!
