How to make buffalo chicken tortellini
Should I mix tortellini with the buffalo sauce?
Ingredients for this family favorite:
- Tortellini. I prefer to use refrigerated tortellini pasta rather than frozen. The pasta is fresh and the cook time is quick.
- Chicken. If you don’t have time to cook the chicken head of time, grab a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store.
- Buffalo sauce. We love Franks. Or make your own.
- Parmesan. Fresh grated Parmesan cheese can usually be found in the deli or dairy department.
- Cream. You will need half a cup of heavy or whipping cream.
- Butter. Stick with butter instead of margarine for this recipe.
