6 tablespoons butter, separated
1 jar sun-dried tomatoes (1 tablespoon oil and 3/4 cup tomatoes), coarsely chopped
1 package (8 ounces) baby bella mushrooms, sliced
- ½ sweet onion sliced
1 teaspoon fresh chopped garlic
- 2 ½ teaspoons Simply Savory by Rachel Ultimate Italian Blends
1 and 1/4 cup heavy cream (can substitute half & half)
- 1 cup chicken stock
½ cup + 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, separated
9 ounces refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini
1 and ½ cups chopped rotisserie or grilled chicken
2 cups fresh baby spinach
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Place a large oven-safe skillet on the stove over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon of the sun-dried tomato oil.
Add in the sliced mushrooms and onions and stir for 2-3 minutes. Add in 3/4 cup coarsely chopped sun-dried tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for another 2-3 minutes. Add in garlic and stir for 30 seconds.
Add the remaining 4 tablespoons butter to the skillet and melt. Add in all of the seasonings and salt + pepper to taste.
Very gradually stir in the cream and stock until the mixture is smooth. While stirring occasionally allow the mixture to thicken (about 5 minutes). Stir in ½ cup parmesan cheese and allow to melt.
Add in the prepared chicken and refrigerated tortellini (uncooked), and spinach. Stir until all is coated. Press the tortellinis below the liquid (if needed add a bit more milk or broth/stock).
Top with remaining Parmesan cheese and place in the oven.
Bake for 8 minutes. Remove, and stir everything. Return to the oven for 3 more minutes or until tortellinis are al dente. If desired, turn on the broiler and then broil for another 2-3 minutes.
Remove from the heat, top with additional salt, pepper, and some chopped fresh parsley if desired. Enjoy immediately.
