Baked Bacon and Cheese Tortillini

I saw a version of this online and had to try it! This was easy to make, and delicious….like really good. It didn’t last long as all. The few leftovers we had were gone by the next day, my husband also discovered that a little bit of marinara on top makes this great too, I’ve got a great recipe for homemade sauce, click here. You will want to make this again and again. 

Ingredients:

1 package cheese tortellini

16 oz frozen broccoli florets

6 strips thick cut bacon, cut into small pieces

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1 tablespoon flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper
