  • 6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Hunt’s® Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic and Oregano, undrained

  • 1 (8 count) can Hunt's® Tomato Sauce with Basil, Garlic and Oregano

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen cheese tortellini

  • ½ cup chive and onion soft cream cheese spread

  • 1 cup frozen green peas

  • 1 pinch Cracked black pepper


  1. Cook bacon in large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-low heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, drain and discard all but 1 tablespoon drippings. Add garlic to drippings; cook 30 seconds or until fragrant.

  2. Add undrained tomatoes, tomato sauce and water; stir. Bring to a boil over high heat; stir in tortellini. Return to a boil; cover and simmer over medium-low heat 6 minutes or until tortellini is tender, stirring gently after 3 minutes.

  3. Add cream cheese; stir until completely melted. Stir in bacon and peas. Return to a boil; simmer 2 minutes. Sprinkle liberally with pepper, if desired.


Cook's Tip: While any bacon will work in this recipe, smoky thick-sliced bacon produces the best results. To substitute ham for the bacon, cook garlic in 1 tablespoon olive oil and add 1 cup diced ham with the tomatoes, tomato sauce and water. Recipe may be prepared with refrigerated tortellini in place of frozen. Use a 20-oz package and increase water to 1-1/4 cups.
