Tortellini with Chicken, Peppers, Mushrooms and Tomatoes


  • 1 lb. cheese tortellini

  • 1 lb. chicken breasts

  • 2 tbsp. canola oil

  • 1 cup frozen green and red peppers, sliced

  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes, basil, garlic and oregano flavor

  • 1/2 cup Italian dressing

  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded

  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

To cook the chicken, heat a grill to medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Place chicken on the grill and cook until the chicken is no longer pink, about 4 minutes on each side. If you do not have a grill to use, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place chicken breasts on a greased baking sheet. Bake 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Once chicken is cooked, slice into small strips or cubes.

Meanwhile, cook tortellini in a large pot of boiling water for 6-7 minutes. 

In large skillet, heat canola oil.  Add peppers and mushrooms. Saute for about 4 minutes or until tender.  Add the diced tomatoes and dressing. Continue cooking until the mixture starts to boil. Add the cheeses and stir until melted and well combined.  Add the cooked chicken to the mixture. 

Drain tortellini and add to the sauce. Mix well and serve.
