6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
1 can (14.5 oz each) Hunt's® Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic and Oregano, undrained
1 can (8 oz each) Hunt's® Tomato Sauce with Basil, Garlic and Oregano
1 cup water
1 pkg (16 oz each) frozen cheese tortellini
1/2 cup chive and onion soft cream cheese spread
1 cup frozen green peas
Cracked black pepper, optional
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.
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.
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.
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.
