Buffalo Chicken Tortellini

We eat a LOT of chicken in our home, and we love pasta! Alfredo is a regular in our meal rotation, but this spin on it is slowly becoming my favorite!

*Note- The buffalo sauce is a little too warm for a few little mouths around here– so I reserve some Tortellini, chicken, and Alfredo sauce for them to enjoy the meal sans buffalo sauce!

Buffalo Chicken Tortellini

Hands on time: 5 min

4 cups cooked, diced chicken
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1 scallion, thinly sliced, divided (optional)

1. In a medium stockpot, cook tortellini according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/4 cooking water.
