Only quantities of ingredients are changed; recipe Directions below will not reflect those changes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups - cooked chicken, chopped
  • 16 ounces - refrigerated cheese tortellini, such as Buitoni
  • 30 ounces - spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cups - beef broth
  • 1/4 teaspoons - garlic powder or garlic salt
  • - shredded mozzarella cheese, for topping before serving
  • Directions:

    If you don't have any cooked chicken on hand, place a couple of chicken pieces (skinless, boneless, breast or thigh or tenderloin) into a skillet with a little olive oil; season chicken with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and a little garlic, if desired. Allow to cook until cooked through, about 6-10 minutes, depending on thickness of pieces; remove from skillet and chop.

    In a large bowl, stir together the spaghetti sauce, beef broth, and garlic powder. Stir in the cheese tortellini, followed by the chicken pieces, and mix well.

    Pour mixture into a 2-quart casserole dish and cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.

    Remove from oven, stir gently; top with mozzarella and allow to sit for 3-5 minutes to allow cheese to melt before serving.
