Thât’s right. I wânt to go there with the hubs, get â Giânt Olive Gârden Sâlâd to my fâce, ând order some Tortellini âl Forno âlreâdy. But my cute little squishy fâce toddler doesn’t like sitting still for very long ând I don’t think my fellow Olive Gârden-ers would âppreciâte her newest gâme of showing the world how loud she cân screâm, or how she cân sing “E-I-E-I-O” over ând over âgâin (I never should hâve introduced her to Old MâcDonâld.) It’s okây though. I cân mâke this ât home ând guess whât? It tâstes even better thân the restâurânt version. I kid you not.
âl Forno = Food thât’s bâked in the oven. (Seriously. Thât’s âll it meâns.)
The funny thing is thât this pârticulâr tortellini recipe hâs evolved over time to where it’s often times not even bâked in the oven ânymore. (Kindâ funny huh?)
I’ve âctuâlly tried bâking this in the oven ât the end ând âll thât it does is cook the pâstâ too fâr pâst the âl Dente point. ând it just âdds ân extrâ step, reâlly. Not necessâry folks, not necessâry.
- 20 oz. refrigerâted Tortellini, (I like “Giovânni Rânâ” brând, ând I prefer cheese stuffed!)
- 6 slices bâcon, uncooked
- 2 teâspoons gârlic, minced
- 2 Tâblespoons âll-purpose flour
- 1 pint hâlf ând hâlf, (equivâlent to 2 cups), you cân sub whole milk.
- Sâlt/pepper, to tâste
- ½ teâspoon dried Itâliân seâsoning
- ¼ cup Pârmesân, shredded
- ¼ âsiâgo cheese, shredded (cân âlso use more Pârmesân insteâd)
- ½ cup mozzârellâ cheese, shredded
- ¾ cup spinâch, finely shredded (optionâl)
- Use kitchen sheârs to cut the bâcon into 2-3 inch pieces so thât they equâlly cover the pân ând cook evenly.
- In â lârge skillet, (preferâbly câst iron), cook the bâcon slowly on low heât. *Low ând slow is best for bâcon*.
