Chicken Tortellini

My mom thinks I need more food posts.

One of my friends from Bunco made this dish and I wrangled the recipe from her.  However, I didn't have everything she had so now I just make it on the fly with whatever I have.

Make tortellini according to package (I like the 3-cheese or the spinach ones)
A little olive oil
Chicken Breasts
Canned mushrooms (she used fresh)
Roasted red pepper (she had her home grown, frozen sun-dried tomatoes)
Jar of Alfredo sauce

Dice up the chicken and cook in a little olive oil in a skillet.  Remove chicken, add a little more oil and cook zucchini, onion and garlic.  Add back chicken and include peppers and mushrooms.  Add in about half-three-quarters a jar of the Alfredo and let simmer.

Top tortellini with sauce and Enjoy!

This could be made with any veggies on hand, but these are the ones I enjoy.  I feel like such a good veggie eater when I make this and there is always enough for lunch the next day because B is not a fan of any pasta dish that is not spaghetti.
