Creamy Chicken and Tortellini Creamy chicken and tortellini is ‘pasta’tively perfect for dinner this winter

I have officially reached the hibernation stage of winter. Once I’m home from work, I am constantly clad in my fleece pants, thick socks and carrying a fuzzy blanket for our schnauzer and me to curl up under on the couch. On top of that, I’m mostly attracted to meals that are warm and carb …
